HISTORY
The workhouse, built off Thorpe Road in 1836, was somewhere poor people in the area could go. In return for food and clothing they were given work to do. The former workhouse later became St Mary's Hospital.

The nearby vagrant cells were for vagrants, or tramps, passing through the town. At the time it was illegal to sleep on the streets so the vagrants either had to rent a room somewhere in the town or, if they had no money, sleep in the cells.

I think the hospital closed around 2010.

Bonus dead body storage shot - the door to the mortuary was sealed up, but the window had been smashed enough to poke a lens through

I've not done the hospital part itself yet, but I enjoyed the vagrancy cells.

Nice to see someone else visit the whole site, after getting in to the hospital was very surprised to see that no one had been in beforehand. Nice shots :)
