Save the Cleveland St Workhouse from demolition!

Save The Strand Union Workhouse on Cleveland St, in Fitzrovia, London, from demolition!  It was built in the 1770s, when the area was still mostly fields, and is unique in being a purpose-built Georgian workhouse that has been in continuous use as a facility for the sick and poor of London for over 230 years.  The workhouse is threatened with demolition so as to make room for an uninteresting modern block, and the planning meeting that will decide the workhouse’s fate meets next month.
