  • Daily Routine
  • This is my daily routine.
  • Life in the workhouse was arduous and hard work. Children and adults were put in horrible conditions and circumstances. It was a punishment for them. Punishments include being locked up for 24 hours with only bread and wine. Sent to prison for 2 months, to be whipped and many other harsh punishments.

  • Rules
  • You would wake up at about 6o'clock. Breakfast would be half past 6 to 7. Time for starting work is 7. Dinner is 12 to 1. Time for leaving off work is 6o'clock. Supper is at 6 to 7. Bed is at 8.
  • Living condidtions
  • The buildings themselves were stark, undecorated, prison-like structures. There were no curves in the buildings, only sharp corners. There was no architectural decoration. High walls surrounded the whole workhouse, cutting off the view of the outside world from the inmates.
  • The women did domestic jobs such as cleaning, or helping in the kitchen or laundry. Also people did sewing, spinning and weaving. There were also jobs such as stone-breaking, corn-grinding, Bone crushing, wood chopping and oakum picking.
  • You can't make any noise when silence is ordered to You can't use obscene or profane language You can't insult or revile any person You can't threaten to strike or to assault any person You can't pretend sickness You can't get drunk You can't gamble
  • The basic furniture was a cheap wooden bed with a flock-filled sack as a mattress. Two or three blankets were provided, but pillows were considered an unnecessary luxury. Sheets were not provided. Most people shared a bed; the beds were arranged as in a barracks - two rows of bunks. Other furniture included wooden stools or benches and wooden tables.
  • Even the windows were six feet from the floor, and a further 'refinement' was to have the window sills sloping downwards, preventing them from being used as seats of shelves.
