e-petition in support of
the Cleveland Street workhouse
The Cleveland Street workhouse, an architectural survival from late eighteenth century Georgian times, is located at 44 Cleveland Street in Fitzrovia and only a few minutes walk from Soho. It is believed to have been the inspiration for Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist, the author having lived but a few doors away in Cleveland Street.
The workhouse is now under threat from the demolisher's wrecking ball and redevelopment and you are kindly asked to support an e-campaign to save the workhouse by signing the e-petition. The e-petition will remain open until victory is achieved.
Please sign the e-petition and thereby help save a part of London's rich and diverse history.
