YORK­SHIRE LAW AND OR­DER MU­SE­UMS: A rather grim trio of mu­se­ums in Ripon dis­plays a darker side of York­shire’s past. The Workhouse Mu­seum de­picts the harsh re­al­ity of poverty in the 19th Cen­tury; in the Court­house Mu­seum you can stand in the dock and imag­ine what it was like be­ing sen­tenced to hard labour; fi­nally, the Prison and Po­lice Mu­seum gives a hint of what that pun­ish­ment might have been like.
