Pauper to Patient - A Guided Tour Through History
A walk through Isleworth as part of the Hounslow Heritage Walks series
Ever wondered what it was like to be destitute in the days before the welfare state? To be reliant on bread being handed out after having to listen to a long dreary sermon?
Or to be segregated from your spouse and children in order to gain a roof over your head?
If so, come along 2.30 p.m. Sunday 30th August to All Saints’ Church, Church Street Isleworth and join a guided tour recounting also how the workhouse evolved into a hospital that today exhibits memorabilia of the past. There is a charge of £3 per person, children free.
Walks are conducted by Hounslow Heritage Guides throughout the summer in Brentford, Chiswick and Isleworth. On the same weekend as the Pauper to Patient walk there is also Brentford - Road, Rail and Canal, a circular walk exploring Brentford's historic transport links, from Roman times to the present day.
Brentford walks leave the corner of the High Street and Half Acre (outside Goddard’s shop) at 2.30pm (unless stated otherwise) and cost £3 per person. Children are free.
There’s no need to book – just pay the guide.
