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.
This is the third of several photographs I took in 2002 and shows the women’s exercise yard and dormitories on the right and on the left the children’s schoolroom on the ground floor and their dormitories on the first and second floor. N.B. Note the bricked up windows no doubt due to the window tax at that time.
