Rebuilding of the Pediments at the Debtors Prison, York

The Debtors Prison nowadays forms part of York’s Castle Museum, possibly the foremost folk museum in the Country and visited each year by over half a million people. It was built in 1701 on the south-eastem side of the old castle yard as a replacement for earlier ruinous buildings. It is a fine Vanburgh building having two projecting wings with an octagonal turret, containing a clock and bell, surmounting the centre. J.R. Nursey
