17/02/93 Former secure-accommodation range &
att. yard wall at King Edward VII
Former secure-accommodation block with attached yard wall, at
former Windsor Union Workhouse (now King Edward VII Hospital
(qv)). Mid C19, altered. Brownish brick in Flemish bond; Welsh
EXTERIOR: single storey; 12-bay range at south-west end,
formerly sleeping accommodation, with walled yard on
north-west side; adjoining range of similar length and
slightly different roof-pitch to north-east.
South-west range has lower-roofed outshut on north-west side
with barred windows and small board-shuttered openings at low
level; barred windows below eaves of main block; and in rear
wall (paired); continuous ridge course; 4-panel door with
4-pane overlight in south-west gable. North-east range has
barred windows and pitched wooden roof, louvre to rear roof
slope; some inserted openings.
INTERIOR: not inspected, but south-west range has cell-like
accommodation. This range is reported to have been used as
secure accommodation for vagrants who were taken in, bathed in
a bathhouse, now demolished, at north-east end, fed in the
next block, and put in the south-west block to sleep; in the
morning they worked in the yard (apparently crawling-out of
the cells through the shuttered openings) breaking clinker,
which was passed out through the holes in the yard wall,
before being released.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached yard wall approx 2 metres high;
having line of circular-patterned holes on north-west side.
An unusual survival of the workhouse organisation.
