Take a look at the websites.  It shows quite clearly that the original workhouse stood off Nabcroft Lane where David Browns Gear Works now is.  However, the OS Map from 1888-1913 shows a much larger one on Barton Road at the back of what I know as St Lukes hospital.  When Barton Road became Blackmoorfoot Road I have no idea, but clearly it did.  The Craven Heifer mentioned by others is actually on Blackmoorfoot Road near the junction with Nabcroft Lane.  On Google Earth it is right by the bus stop.

Thank you.  I was actually there in September on holiday and saw the bus stop outside.
Have to say the place looks a bit of a dive  :-X
