It is an old building, in the centre of the town, & has been enlarged at various periods; but being very inconvenient & too small for the present wants of the parish, it is about to give place to a commodious New Workhouse, now building on the Saltash Rd, nearly 2 miles from the town. This building will have room for 500paupers; & attached to it will be a Lunatic Asylum, large enough for 35 inmates. There have been as many as 470 paupers crowded in the old workhouse. The expenditure of the parish for the maintenance of the poor was £10,358 in 1838, & £9841 in 1848. MrJohn Beer jr is the clerk; Mr James & Mrs Lancaster are governor & matron of the workhouse.
