    Great post Womabt.
    I popped in here the other week, Its a really atmospheric and eerie little place.
    I had researched the workhouse and found this bit of information ;
    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.
    ďAnd above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.Ē ― Roald Dahl
