1836 Former Union Workhouse. Built to replace Lord Weymouth’s 1727 or 1757 Workhouse which stood actually on the Common. Like Christchurch, it was felt to be in a more salubrious situation away from the Common it served. 2 storeys, 1st floor of local rubblework, ground floor of channelled ashlar. Slate roof hipped to right. 9 windows front with central gabled break and 2 additional slightly set back windows to right. Glazing bar sashes, moulded architraves on 1st floor. Modern wide glazed gabled porch in front of central entrance. 3 wings in star plan to rear, 3 storeys, each of 7 bays with slight gabled break to centre; local rubblework with brick quoins and dressings and ashlar lintels grooved as brick flat arches to glazing bar sashes. Single story outbuildings to perimeter of star plus a 2 story staff cottage to north. The local rubblework low boundary walls can still be traced through now partially demolished. Circa 1836, 3-4ft high.
