Ulverston Workhouse in the 19th Century
June Whitehead’s evocative study of children’s experiences in Ulverston Workhouse is an attempt to unravel the truth behind the grim and uncaring image of Victorian Workhouses made popular through Dickens’ Oliver Twist.
This is a fascinating insight, not just into a forgotten aspect of Ulverston’s past, but into the much maligned Poor Law and the lives of pauper children.
