Health and Welfare
Early 20th century workhouse building originally built as a terrace of four cottages to house aged married couples from the Union Workhouse. By 2014 used to house the hospital estates department. The cottages were altered on several occasions during the 20th century through the addition of various porches and extensions. The original cottages had a shared WC and sink area to the northern end and coal shed to the southern end of the veranda.
