Off To The Workhouse

I had a couple quick of spare hours for a walk this afternoon and had noted the profusion of published caches over in South Woodham Ferrers so here I came. The caches were all trads without many problems except for one - Bancrofts. This seemed to be hidden on a fast food kiosk on an industrial estate. 😬 The kiosk was closed so I had plenty of time to look but no joy. Goodness knows what it would be like with a crowd of truckers around it.

There was one cache which I was looking forward to - Workhouse Lane - as I have an interest in Essex Workhouses, The only info that I could find about a Workhouse around here is that a government survey of 1777 listed one in Woodham Ferres (sic). This became part of the Chelmsford Union of Workhouses in 1835. That’s all I know.😀
