Discover secret places
If you peer through the dead room window you can see this coffin bier and find out about what became of the deceased that were housed in this forbidding space.
This is just one of several secret places which you can explore on your visit this autumn. Look out for the laundry drying room, old infirmary, hidden bakery, water tank and hidden wall panelling.
The Hidden Bakery
On original Workhouse plans the bakery was marked as a privy and since opening to the public in 2002 it had remained undisturbed until a few years ago when a mystery key was discovered.
The bakery remains as it was found but to help slow down the deterioration of the metalwork, our conservation team apply a product called hotspot. Now open to the public, you can experience this secret place for the first time.
