Description

Narberth Poor Law Union workhouse was built in Mill Bridge in the late 1830s and moved to Upper Providence Hill in 1887. The bell would ring to summon inmates to meals and to warn passing tramps when the workhouse gates were closing at sunset.

In 1842 the workhouse was invaded by Rebecca Rioters who were conducting a campaign against the introduction of local road tolls.
