#MySundayPhoto – The Workhouse, Southwell

We spent this weekend at my parents’ house in Nottinghamshire. Yesterday with the weather being fairly decent, we decided to head outdoors. The hubby and I have National Trust membership, so we decided to visit The Workhouse in Southwell – a building which used to house the poor and unable during the Victorian era.

I’m a bit of a closet history geek, so loved immersing myself in the history of the building – even if it is a little eerie! Taylor was having a bit of a whingey weekend, and (unfortunately for the hubby) nobody but Daddy would do (lucky for me!), so she insisted he carried her around the entire tour…leaving mum and I to enjoy the day!

After the tour, we headed to the onsite cafe for cream tea. I love the photo below with my mum and Taylor, since we don’t have many of the three of us.
