ABOUT 'MAD ALICE OF YORK'
Mad Alice Lane (now named Lund's Court) is named after a legendary figure Alice Smith. Several legends surround Alice from the early 1800s. Legend has it that she was locked up in the women’s prison at the Castle either for insanity or for poisoining her husband.
Both legends don't end well for Alice - she is hanged in both. But it appears that no records survive of Alice Smith of York at the start of the 19th Century.
Maybe she just disappeared into thin air. Did she exist at all? Just one more of York's many mysteries.
