Girls Go Back to the Workhouse

28th September 2023

Weaverhall

Weaverhall Workhouse, opened in 1839, had 60 new inmates from BPS this week. The girls were soon put to work, picking oakum, making rag-rugs, doing the laundry and churning butter. We are not so sure that they enjoyed Victorian school though…..the Headmistress may have been a little too strict!
