« on: Saturday 04 April 15 20:28 BST (UK) »
I have been trying to obtain a photo of the above but too date have failed.

I have images of floor plans and lots of info but no photo.  I find it strange that they don't seem o exist.

Does anyone have a pic please

www.workhouses.org.uk reports:

The workhouse buildings were demolished in 1941.#
so probably no photos?

If you look on the 'Builth Wells Heritage Society' facebook page, they posted a distant picture of the Builth Workhouse.
