[Up to 1834] [After 1834] [Staff] [Inmates] [Records] [Bibliography] [Links] The first mention of a workhouse in Kidderminster was in 1753 when it stood in Vicar Street. In about1784, a larger establishment was built on the nearby Vicarage meadow, approximately where Oxford Street is today.
Increasing demand for places required the construction in 1816 of a further new workhouse was erected in Hornes’s Field, now Broad Street. The Bewdley Overseers' accounts record the payment of a doctor to visit the sick in the workhouse, and extra food for them.
There have been more than 500 True Hollywood Stories.
The series was nominated for Emmy Awards in 2001, 2002, and 2003, and Prism Awards in 2009.
The workhouse location and layout are shown of the 1902 map below. The only surviving buildings are now (2007) an entrance lodge and vagrants' block at the west of the site, erected in 1874 to a design by local architect JT Meredith.
The male vagrants' accommodation included nine sleeping cells measuring 10 feet by four feet, and nine labour cells facing them across a passageway.
There was also a double room and three single rooms for women. Rocks were broken up until the pieces were small enough to pass through a grille to the stone-yard outside.
On Wednesday, May 27, 2009, at 10pm Pacific time, the 500th THS episode premiered.
It was a top 10 countdown of the greatest stories ever told.
