Southwell Workhouse

By Hurstbourne
The workhouse at Southwell in Nottinghamshire was designed and built by the Reverend J. T. Becher in 1824. It is now open to the public after being acquired and renovated by the National Trust and is well worth a visit, but I advise that you leave at least 2 hours to complete your tour.

This is the second of several photographs I took in 2002 and shows the menís dormitories and exercise yard. Part of the injustice of the workhouse system was that men, women and children were separated on arrival and were only allowed to come to together on Sunday for prayers.
