Richmond Castle 'The Cell Block' Exhibition


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

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.

This new exhibition invites you to 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) and will be on temporary display in Hut 12.

All are welcome to take part in the Eden Camp Wartime Easter Egg Hunt. www.edencamp.co.uk/easter-events

The museum will be open as normal. We advise that you contact the museum nearer the time of any event to receive confirmation, admission prices and further details.
