The Workhouse & The Hidden Poor
05 June 7:30pm - 9:30pm
A talk by David Shead, a member of the Society. David has an individual passion for social history and its treatment of the poor. He will cover the development and principles behind the evolution of the local Workhouse, including our own at The Red House. He also explores whether the Workhouse was place where the poor became classed as, out of sight out of mind.
