London – Havering (Borough of) – Upminster – Former Workhouse

This property was built in 1751 as the workhouse for the area, being extended in 1783. As the need for workhouses increased, a new building was necessary as this could only hold just over twenty inmates. After a new workhouse was constructed in Romford, this building was turned into a row of cottages.

Now known as Ingrebourne Cottage, the frontages have been quite modernised, although the buildings retain some historic charm.
