Tonbridge Union Workhouse
Much has already been written about the old workhouse on what is now the site of the modern hospital.
Built in 1836 it was the local workhouse and infirmary to house, feed and tend for the poor, destitute and sick of the area.
Site of former Pembury Hospital, formerly Sandhill Infirmary and
before that the Tonbridge Union Workhouse.
