Welwyn Workhouse  - by M. S. Edwards

Herts Past and Present, Spring 2009 - No 14

Here Sue Edwards takes us inside Welwyn workhouse for a look at the care taken in dressing, feeding and clothing the inmates - of all generations - in 1907 and earlier. Fortunately the building itself survives and its present owners have made some interesting discoveries about the interior layout of the building.
