    I believe the university knocked down the last remaining part of the workhouse a few years ago to build that goldfish bowl. I think it was the admittance house? i could be wrong? i am most of the time . but if true what a sad thing to do, such history.

    You want MORE? More boy? MORE?

    This website is an absolute mine of information;

    www.workhouses.org.uk - The Workhouse Web Site

    Loads on the Select Vestry (pre-1834 Poor Law commission) and the Brownlow Hill Workhouse as well as the Toxteth and West Derby Work Houses.
