Oliver Twist's WORKHOUSE

A Victorian Workhouse.
Dr Ruth Richardson discusses her findings with Dr Paul Schlicke, editor of The Dickens Companion.

I couldn't access the radio interview on it's own but here is a link to the BBC website that will allow you to listen to the interview.

So, they think they have found the very workhouse Dickens used as his source for Oliver Twist.

  1. That's pretty impressive that they could find the exact workhouse that inspired Dickens.
