Taunton Poor Law Union and Workhouse

Taunton Union Workhouse was erected 1836-1838 from designs by Sampson Kempthorne and was based on the Hexagon Plan.

Union Road was renamed Trinity Road and the Workhouse became Trinity Hospital. The majority of the buildings have now been demolished, but the main entrance block was listed as Grade II and has been converted to residential accommodation.
