Wild West Town Built In North Yorkshire

A full size Wild West town's been built in North Yorkshire, as Adrenalin open their doors to the 'Purgatory' paintball centre
It's taken over 12 months to build 'Purgatory' from scratch at the site near Richmond.
The site hosts 30 buildings, including the Sheriff's office complete with a cell, a bank, a post office and church.
Adrenalin also plays host to the actual Krypton Factor assault course used in the TV series.
Will Scullion, managing director at Adrenalin told Capital:
"There's nothing else like this in this country.
It looks like a film set. It is a really intricate game field to play.
It's everything you could imagine if you owned your own Wild West town.
We got carried away with our imagination and started putting multiple rooms in the buildings.
We had to lay 150 tonnes of hardcore, netting to keep the ground stable, and a couple of hundred tonnes of mulch on top of that. Then we started building the structures. It's all been done by hand.
This is only the beginning though. We're gonna add a courthouse with 4 rooms and staircase, a school, a two-storey barn and that'll keep us going for the next couple of years."
