The Cell Block - An exciting exhibition here at The Station!

An exciting exhibition here at The Station!

Covering the walls of the 19th-century cell block at Richmond Castle is fascinating graffiti, ranging from delicate portraits to bold political and religious statements; pastoral scenes and regimental numbers.

With the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, English Heritage is undertaking a project to record, conserve and research this remarkable record.

In this new exhibition, walk through the cells in a virtual tour, discover the science behind the graffiti’s conservation, and read about English Heritage's latest research discoveries and community activities.

This exhibition has been produced thanks largely to the support of National Lottery players through a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).
