The Lewes Workhouse Building, 1868-1959

Wednesday 22 April, 5.30-6.30pm, £5


The Lewes Union Workhouse, impressive but long-forgotten, is full of fascinating stories. In this illustrated talk, local historian Mat Homewood takes us from the building’s construction in the 1860s to its demolition during the 1950s. It will cover life in the workhouse, delving into the often turbulent lives of the seven workhouse masters. The building ceased to be used as a workhouse in 1902, and the talk will also explore its subsequent uses.
