Shows no more from this than that U.S.D covers the area. Would I be right to think I'm suspecting that his birth was in a workhouse environment of some kind ?

is there no address other than that?

Usually, even if workhouse, they put the street address or something.  (well ones I've seen anyway)

Not at all. These were just the forerunnners of Urban Districts. Any birth in the area could be so described.

Also, from the start of Civil Registration, many Registration Districts were described as "xxxxx Union".
That's because Registration Districts were originally based on existing Poor Law Unions.

Again seeing this on a birth certificate does not indicate a workhouse birth ;D
