Victorian children working in textile mills

This clip describes what life was like for children apprenticed in textile mills. Huge mills were built in the 18th and 19th centuries. To produce cotton and woollen cloth the mills needed a vast workforce, which included children. Children were apprenticed at nine and were given lodgings, food and one hour’s schooling a week. Hours were long and the mills noisy, hot, dusty and dangerous places to work. Medical records reveal that accidents and disease were common.

               CHILDREN ABUSED IN WORKHOUSE

 

By Chief Reporter Miss J. Stacey

 

Children are being abused and neglected by Southwell Nottinghamshire Workhouse. Orphans are being mistreated through living and working conditions.

 

Investigators believe that, these lonely imprisoned children are not having the correct care that they should be receiving. Therefore, the heartbroken children have little choice of where their next step is. The children are being pushed to the core to work for inhumane hours. If this is continuous the trapped orphans will be dead before a blink of an eye. Unfortunately, it can be very unfair on boys because, not a lot of girls are within the Factory.

 

To make matters worse, the Workhouse is making living and working conditions extremely appalling, so much that it is a sight for sore eyes! The Workhouse is disrespecting the children as hard as they possibly can. In fact , experts believe that the harmless orphans have no bright future ahead of them they say that because they are only earning £1:00 a week , from my point of view this is an appalling amount of money to live on. The orphans are having more and more difficulties eating , surviving its frightful to watch the innocent children go through!

 

These children are living off of basic food such as: meagre cheese , stale bread , watery porridge and last of all flour hasty puddings. Kids are having a lack of energy and nutrients. If the imprisoned children are caught stealing more food they are starved for the upcoming night. After the long hours of work , the poor , imprisoned children are starving and desperate for food.

 

Unfortunately, the abusive conditions that the heartbroken children through are horrific! For the vulnerable orphans they have they have to do jobs for instance: picking knots out of ropes, putting things in boxes for the Workhouse . The desperate children are not only terrified of the life ahead, but more so of the beatings that they often receive. The ashamed orphans are put through a MASSIVE amount of exhaustion this is absolutely disgraceful how the staff at the factory can watch them die like that, even hurt them without permission is eye astounding!

 

After interviewing Oliver Twist , this is what he had to say about the appalling , lifeless Workhouse :

 

‘’ All of us children are being tortured through living and working conditions at Southwell Nottinghamshire Workhouse. The beatings are so frightful that there is not a possible word for it! I think that this Workhouse needs to be fined and all Orphan workers deserve a pay rise ! I know I might sound un-grateful but I am feeling unloved ,trapped I this Workhouse it is just so life-threatening for all people!’’

 

We also interviewed Artful Dodger and this is his side of the story:

 

‘’ I don’t know if it is just me but I feel like I am dying and like my feelings have been ripped up in a shredder. My living and working conditions are blinding its so horrendous! I want to see my family and know how it feels to be loved by someone!’’

 

We tried to interview Mrs Perkins but she declined to comment.

 

The future looks grim for these children. Improvements need to be made otherwise, we will be saying goodbye to the Factory!
