Great place to visit, Southwell Workhouse

Visited Southwell Workhouse when it first opened approx 2 years ago. It is a former workhouse bought by the National trust to save it from being developed into designer flats. If you have an ancestor who was in a workhouse or just have an interest in the past its a fantastic place to visit. Check it out on the National Trust site. regards Jayne
