About This Video

This video was uploaded to the YouTube channel Dead Air in March 2020.

Workhouses in Britain were stereotypically for the poor, but we know that many people had no choice but to come here. People here would be given work to do in exchange for a bed and food.

Not many people left the workhouse on their own accord, unless they had a place to go and live - this often meant people spent their lives in these places. The youngest person to be admitted into Ripon was just 2 weeks old.

There are over 70 recorded deaths here, although another workhouse also existed on the site prior to the Victorian workhouse being built in 1854. Its no suprise that this place is said to have many ghosts. Full sightings, ghostly voices and poltergeist activity have been experienced here.

About Dead Air

Dead Air was formed in 2009 by University friends Rob Davies and Chris Felton, originally as a radio show in Newcastle based FM station, NE1fm. The show originally was based around encouraging callers to talk about their own experiences and opinions on the paranormal, as well as monthly live broadcasts from some of the North East's scariest places.

Chris works alongside Alan Robson, the host of Metro Radio's Nightowls and Sky TV's 'Scariest Places on Earth', and plans to make a full return to the show in 2021. Rob has been a radio presenter with NE1fm on the music scene, but is now 100% committed to creating paranormal content for the channel.
