Insch, Aberdeenshire

Insch erected a parochial poorhouse in about 1853, financed by the poor rates. It was locally administered rather than operating as a statutory poorhouse under the central Board of Supervision.

The exact location of the premises is unknown but census listings indicate it was near to Market Green at the north of Insch village. In 1904, accommodation was available for two women.
