Full Description

Wangford Incorporated Hundred Workhouse erected in 1765, for background information see (S1). Unlike other workhouses of this period no associated burial ground is shown on the (1927) 1:2500 map (S2). It is, however, built close to Shipmeadow Church and joined to the rectory by a footpath. There was an associated Pest House, now demolished, at TM 3767 8955 (S3). The cost of building is described by Shaw (S4).
Now used as a poultry factory.
