The Industrial Revolution

 

The Workhouse was a building made to house the poor. They were built all over the country as a result of the 1834 New Poor Law's introduction. This act of Parliament said that people who were very poor, old, sick or unemployed should be looked after in a Workhouse. These buildings were often very large and grew to be feared by the poor and old.

The workhouse would provide food, drink and work for it's inmates. The Work House was a hard place, usually people sent to the workhouse were poor and could not benefit from a quick house sale. Instead they had to gather all of their belongings into a small pack and head off to the work house where they were expected to stay until they died.
