Our small housekeeping and conservation team work around the clock to keep The Workhouse clean. From scrubbing to dusting our conservators and volunteers work to minimise damage caused over time and help us tell The Workhouse story to future generations.
Oral history plays a strong part in the interpretation of The Workhouse. The volunteer team have worked for well over a decade to collect memories from over 60 people who once lived, worked and grew up here. These testimonies help us to interpret The Workhouse and link the past to the present.
