Thorne Workhouse was built in 1838 and was designed to hold 200 patients; men, women and children. In the 1930s, the average number of patients was 80. Conditions were very basic, to the point of being unsatisfactory and the workhouse closed over the following years. As with many workhouses, people were admitted, never to leave again. Those who did pass away whilst at the workhouse were buried in unmark graves.
The buildings were then used by the military during the years 1940 through to 1944. The main building has since been demolished, and what was the infirmary is now a residential home. The morgue behind the infirmary was demolished in 1969. You now have the chance to investigate the haunted living quarters.
Full bodied apparitions are seen around the site, including those of an unknown man, woman and young girl.
Audible phenomenon is reported frequently with sounds such as wailing, sighing and talking.
Poltergeist activity is also reported here with many items said to move on their own!
Thorne Workhouse is ready and waiting for you to come and investigate…. if you dare?!
