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.

This is the last of several photographs I took in 2002 and shows the menís exercise yard and dormitories on the left and the childrenís schoolroom and dormitories on the right. N.B. Note the frosted glass on the bottom half of the schoolroom windows to stop the children from seeing out and the bricked up windows no doubt due to the window tax at that time.
