I really enjoyed visiting The Workhouse, and learning more about England’s history, but I’ve struggled with coming up exactly how to write about it. It’s one of those places that seems like there is a good idea behind it, helping the poor, getting them off the street and giving them shelter and food.

Saturday we took advantage of the nice weather and met Adam’s sister and niece at East Riddleston Hall in West Yorkshire which is a National Trust property.
