In 1929, the Master of Abingdon workhouse approached a local school for a pupil to train as workhouse clerk. The boy selected was 14 year old Laurie Liddiard. These audio clips of his memories, recorded in May 2000, provide a fascinating glimpse of the workhouse before its closure in 1931.
The clips are each 1-2 minutes long and are in MP3 audio format.
