Workhouse Bricks Update

Damage to Bricks 

Earlier this month (August 2022) there was an unfortunate accident in the courtyard where the engraved memorial bricks are. A car hit a wall and some damage was done to the external door, interior office and surrounding structures. 

Members of the Council's Conservation Team have been on site to assess the damage and save what bricks they can. There are some whole bricks which can hopefully be reused and more part/broken bricks so there is a bit of a jigsaw puzzle exercise to be done 

All bricks have been removed to a safe place and the area cordoned off and made secure. 

Further updates will be issued when we know more. 

(We sincerely hope the driver of the car is making a good recovery)
