Local History

I’m used to describing to people where I live as "Where Southmoor Hospital used to be" and this is quite true.

Idly using google images for Hemsworth to see what would come up, as I was producing a Hemsworth page on the openstreetmap wiki, and in doing so, I discovered that we live on the site of the former Hemsworth workhouse, infact the reamining buildings from what i thought was the hospital actually date to the workhouse.
