Workhouse Chapel, Sturminster Newton, Dorset

Sturminster workhouse, for 150 inmates, was built in 1838 at the north of Sturminster Newton. The chapel, at the south-west of the site, may have been added later. Not all workhouses had their own chapel. The building was being used a local museum in 2006.
