Experience the Victorian Workhouse starting at the original gatehouse building, with the Guardians' Room, inmates' bathing area, Vagrants' Cells and the Receiving Ward. See the contrast between the Master & Matron's quarters and the Victorian kitchen, scullery, dining room and school room.

Wander around the restored kitchen garden, cultivating heritage crops using methods the inmates once used.
