Lost Children

Ulverston Workhouse in the 19th Century

‘An insight, not just into a forgotten aspect of Ulverston’s past, but into the much aligned Victorian Poor Law and the lives of pauper children.  June Whitehead’s evocative study of children’s experience in Ulverston is an attempt to unravel the truth behind this image.’ Dr Michael Winstanley.
