Ledbury, Church Lane Workhouse

Sites and Monuments Record reference no. 19858, Ordnance Survey grid reference SO 7115 3774

A building is marked at this location on the 1841 tithe award map. Hillaby notes that "a large part of the old workhouse in Church Street was used as a school for 300 boys." It is possible that this was the site of the pre-1837 workhouse. Not marked on the 1886 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map.

(J. G. Hillaby, The Book of Ledbury: An essay in interpretation, 1982, p. 134)
