About the location
Ripon Museums are a set of three Yorkshire law and order museums in Ripon, North Yorkshire. The Ripon Workhouse Multiview postcard features four views of largest museum, the Ripon Workhouse Museum. Ripon Workhouse Museum Main Block (top left) contains exhibits including the Master’s study and the inmates dining hall. Ripon Workhouse Museum Gatehouse (top right) building dates from 1854, though a workhouse had stood on Allhallowgate in Ripon since 1776. The Vagrant’s Bathroom (bottom left) is one of the exhibits in the gatehouse building – vagrants were allowed an evening meal, a bed for the night and could leave the next day after completing a task! The Workhouse Kitchen Garden (bottom right) has been restored and is maintained by volunteers using some Victorian horticultural practices.
