The Workhouse opened in 1840 and was built to accommodate 250 inmates. Whole families were admitted and separated according to the strict guidelines laid down by the government as part of the Poor Law reforms.


The Workhouse later became a residential home for the elderly and had a brief life as an outward bound centre before been abandoned and falling derelict for over 25 years before it was purchased by the Trust and brought back to life. The Workhouse is one of the few examples of these buildings still open and accessible to the public.


So much paranormal activity is experienced here regually! Strange smells, ghostly voices, moans, gtraons, poltergiest activity, slamming doors and moving furniture along with sightings of full apparitions have all been reported and still are!!
