Don't forget to walk round the garden ! it grows what they used to while the workhouse was open.

  • quite an interesting afternoon. One of the few places in the area where it is possible to see what the workhouse was like. My Grandfather, who was born in 1890 remembers our local one in south Leeds. People that he knew went in. Horrible!
  • Loved been there alll week
