236/366 The Workhouse

Another picture from yesterdays walk. This is the far end of Workhouse Lake. I think what would have been the workhouse would be over my right shoulder behind me. I can’t really write with any confidence about workhouses, but I have a perception (which I think is a reasonable one) that they would not have been very nice places.

Here’s a link to aa site about the workhouse;http://www.workhouses.org.uk/Alverstoke/. I’m just grateful that we don’t have these institutions these days. But how were they viewed back then? And, was there a way out, once in? Perhaps this is potential Vlog? I have to do a bit of research about them.

I knew that the workhouse but I hadn’t clicked that the piece of water in front of it gave an indication of what had been there. This leads me to wonder if there are other street or place names that give an indication of former activities. I want to find an index of place names for the area and have a quick scan through it.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
