I was very, very smished by the time we got here, so thanks to my companion for the driving and
kick up the arse as always. Originally there were 20 cells, 10 down each side, and an entrance
through the far gable. At a later date a toilet was built across this entrance and alternative access
was through 2 of the cells. A second access was later opened across 2 other cells.

Originally this was four cells. You can see where the wall has been taken out between the first two.

And again here you can see where the wall used to be across the ceiling.

Ten doors down one side all looked like this.

The raised “pallet” is a later addition, being made from engineering blues.

We couldn’t make sense of the bricked up arches and square holes in the brickwork outside below the window holes.

Should have read @slayaaaa's report again to explain those bricked up arches
A vagrants' block was located at the south of the workhouse. It contained work cells for stone-breaking at the southern side. The cells walls contained outlet grids (now bricked up) through which were placed the small pieces of broken stone

Thanks
