Richmond Castle North Yorkshire

With tremendous views of the Yorkshire Dales, the works of painter JMW Turner and other artists in the late 18th and early 19th centuries enhanced the reputation of Richmond  Castle as a romantic ruin – so the town became a fashionable place for tourists to visit – and has remained so ever since.

However, During the First World War Richmond Castle was occupied by the northern Non-Combatant Corps. This was a military unit in which men who had asked for an exemption from military service could contribute to the war effort in non-combatant roles. However, some men who had been ordered to join the Corps refused to take part in any work contributing to the war effort, because it went against their beliefs.

In 1916 a number of them were detained in cells at Richmond Castle in a 19th-century building, previously the castle’s reserve armoury, beside the castle gate. The walls of these rooms are still covered with graffiti made by these conscientious objectors who became known as the Richmond Sixteen.

They were sent to France in May 1916, where they were put on trial for refusing to obey orders. They faced a potential death sentence. Their transportation to France, trial and sentencing have become notorious in the history of British conscientious objection.
