Much of the harshness associated with the workhouse was psychological: inmates were de-personalised through wearing a uniform and by the regimentation of the regime operated by the workhouse system. The timetable below shows a 'typical' day in the workhouse.
|5 a.m.||6 a.m.||Rising bell|
|6 a.m||7 a.m.||Prayers and breakfast|
|7 a.m.||8 a.m.||Work|
