Brigg Workhouse - The Infirmary
The new workhouse was built in 1835 at the western side of Wrawby Road at the east of Glanford Brigg. The architect was William Adams Nicholson who was also responsible for the Lincoln workhouse. It was designed to accommodate 200 people and the Poor Law Commissioners authorized an expenditure of £5,600 for its construction.The workhouse had a separate fever ward. A new infirmary was erected in 1914-15 to designs by Mr Butterwick. The site later became Glanford Hospital but closed in 1991. The workhouse buildings no longer exist but the infirmary survives as the North Lincolnshire Primary Care Trust Headquarters.
