Workhouses were places of unimaginable horror. Plagued with disease and full to the brim with the most unfortunate souls in society, to end up in one was seen to be the ultimate disgrace. Criminals vagrants and lunatics were housed with single mothers, the elderly and the disabled. If you entered with your family you needn’t think that would provide any comfort or protection, you were separated as soon as you walked through the door. Men, women, boys and girls were all housed separately and only if you were under seven would you get fleeting moments with your mother.
The Llanfyllin Workhouse does break this standard for the better in most parts. The education offered to the children saw them out-perform the local free scholars’ school in exams. Over-crowding was never really an issue and it is widely suggested that the place became a happy home for most. But there are things that couldn’t be controlled, disease was still rife here with an outbreak of Erysipelas killing at least 4 people in one day. This disease causes a grotesque swelling of the face, blisters and sickness so who knows what’s waiting for you in the dark corridors of the Llanfyllin Workhouse.
