Come and join Simply Ghost Nights on a ghost hunting event as we step into the ghostly world of The Ripon Work House Museum.

Completley exclusive to Simply Ghost Nights Ripon Museum is a very active location. Step back in time and take in the atmosphere of the doom and gloom the poor unfortunate residents of the workhouse would have felt from the moment they stepped through the door.

"Hush-a-bye baby, on a tree top. When you grow old, your wages will stop. When you have spent the little you made. First to the poorhouse and then to the grave."...... This rhyme tells the story of many a working man's life in the 19th Century. The rather elegant building in Allhallowgate, standing in grounds graced with flower beds, trees, lilacs and even a passion flower, seems far removed from the dreaded Workhouse in Oliver Twist.

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.

On a previous visit Jez and Jo spoke of a vigil in the bedroom area, these bare rooms were more like prison cells at first glance, and they mentioned that they had some fantastic K2 work in this part of the building with the K2 spiking from green and up to red on request and in accordance to the group's questions.

In the boardroom with Stuart a group of ghost hunters encountered a ghostly character by the name of Gordon, this spectral character kept the group entertained via the ouija board. Gordon informed the group that he had been at the workhouse in the 1890s and had died there, he had hated his time at the workhouse, but it was all he knew in the later years of his life. This information was quite poignant for the group who all felt really sorry for Gordon, that he had lived there for some considerable time before he left the earth plane.
