OLD WINDSOR

SU96SE CRIMP HILL 599-1/14/86 (West side) 17/02/93 Former secure-accommodation range & att. yard wall at King Edward VII Hospital

GV II

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 slate roofs. 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.
