Poor Law Workshop

Was your ancestor ever sent to the workhouse? Want to find out more about what happened to them? Discover the different types of poor law records that exist, dating back to the Tudors, at Hampshire Archives and Local Studies and how these may help you with your family history or local research.

 27 February, 2pm-4pm
Our venue is on the first floor. A lift is available. Since the lift cannot be used in an emergency, evacuation of less able visitors is down the stairs via an evacuation chair to which they must be able to self-transfer, or be accompanied by a carer who can help them transfer. We can cater for up to two such persons (see below).

Please note: tickets will not be issued so please retain your receipt
