About this Event

Join Simply Ghost Nights as we go to the Main Block on a ghost hunting event at The Ripon Workhouse & Orphanage, The Main Block where you can investigate the Master's study, dining room, the pantry, classrooms, inmates dining hall, inmates sleeping quarters and many more areas on a ghost hunt.

A Workhouse has stood on this site since 1776.

The present building was completed in January, 1855. The Workhouse was almost a self sufficient world of its own with its own teacher, chaplain and doctors, chopping its own fire wood, doing its own laundry, growing its own vegetables, having its own infirmary and its own van to transport lunatics to asylums elsewhere if they became unduly violent.

With the coming of the Welfare State, the building was renamed Sharow View and an astonishing change took place. Locked doors were opened, warm fires and bowls of flowers, chintz covers and hangings did everything possible to disguise the high bare rooms and staircases of the Institute. It is presently used as a centre for Social Services.

Join Simply Ghost Nights as we go to the Main Block where you can investigate the Master's study, dining room, the pantry, classrooms, inmates dining hall, inmates sleeping quarters and more.

A feeling of doom or at best hopeless resignation must have fallen on many passing through the Gatehouse arch and hearing the door shut behind them. They knew they would leave only in the regulation coffin, 'with two handles, name of the person with the year of their decease inscribed'. Coffins were ordered in bulk.
