Moffatt, to Sir George Gilbert Scott’s evident surprise, knew an influential magistrate in Wiltshire who invited him to visit there, which led Moffatt being appointed architect to the Amesbury Union Workhouse. The partners did all the drawings together on a Commissioners model ‘square’ design plan to accommodate 150 inmates. Work started in May 1836, costing £4,678 when it was completed in 1837.
