2.30pm February meeting - “Suffolk Workhouses” - Kelsale Village Hall

Ray Whitehand’s talk “At The Overseers Door” tells the story of Suffolk’s parish workhouses, in operation between the 1570s until the 1834 Poor Law Amendment Act. The talk, which is an insight into the author’s best seller book of the same title, gives a summary of the three types of workhouse which existed in the county over a period of nearly 400 years. It then details the first of these places of residence and employment, the parish workhouse. The talk looks at the type of premises used, where to find them, how they were managed, the types of inmate, and the effect they had on the local economy.

Visitors welcome. Admission: members £1, visitors £3, incl tea/coffee.

 

NB. Kelsale Village Hall is up an external shallow flight of stairs, but there is a stair lift: if you think you are likely to need it, please arrive early, and let Maggie Strutt know beforehand, so we can be ready for you! 01728 602298 or maggiestrutt@btinternet.com.
