Our Current Research Project - The Church Stretton Workhouse 

Our latest research project is looking at those inmates and vagrants (a differentiation was made between the longer-term residents of the Workhouse and those who were just passing through) who were there on the evening of Sunday, 3rd April 1881, when the census was taken.

There are nine of us working on the project, which is outlined in the following article, printed in the Spring 2022 edition of Local History News - a publication produced by the British Association of Local History. Click on the icon below to see the article full-screen on a new page.
