Historic stones saved from Northallerton prison

Historic stones mounted on the gatehouse of the former Northallerton prison have been saved.

The gatehouse was demolished last month as part of the £17million Treadmills retail business and leisure development but the three stones – two white roses and the ‘VR’ from the original jail structure have been salvaged.

They will be given a new home in phase two of the development when the listed buildings will be brought back into use.
