Herefordshire workhouses

The Historic Environment Record contains entries for twelve workhouses, located throughout Herefordshire. Most were set up in 1836 as a result of the Poor Law Amendment Act, but a few are of earlier date.

Workhouses were usually located in cities and large market towns, but a few in Herefordshire were established in villages.
