Changing the subject from WWII airfields, can I ask if anyone has recent experience of recording 19th century workhouses? We have one in Newbury that is due to be demolished - 1836, but with a lot of later additions/modifications as a hospital, not listed and not much valued locally. The original pretty much conformed to Sampson Kempthorne's cruciform design. We have got a building recording condition and are considering what we should be asking for. I haven't yet got hold of the EH publication The Workhouse: A study of Poor-Law buildings in England so perhaps all the guidance I need is in that, but in the interim, can anyone offer any pointers? Ideally I'd like one of the end-results to be an increase in local interest, though the building will be gone of course!
