This austere building, the most complete workhouse in existence, was pivotal in the development of our national health and welfare system. For decades it was where the poorest in society had to work and where they received food, shelter and medical care. Charles Dickens's Oliver Twist painted a bleak picture of life in the workhouse. 

Here in this rural workhouse at Southwell, although harsh and monotonous – aspects such as education, medical care or diet may have been better inside The Workhouse than for the poor in their own homes. Entrance Included.
