About this newspaper

Built in 1824 and designed to house 160 inmates, The Workhouse
in the town of Southwell, England was a means of relief for the Victorian poor.

Inmates lived and worked in a strictly segregated environment with virtually no contact between the old and infirm, able-bodied men, women and children.

The Workhouse still occupies a dark place in our collective memory and the fear of the very word ‘workhouse’ still lingers on today.
