A new single building was also expected to save about £300 a year in running costs.

Eventually, towards the end of 1838, it was decided to build a new workhouse on a site on Sparkenhoe Street, at the north side of Conduit Street.

They are all confined within the Precincts of the House, and are not to go out of it without Leave of the Master; if any of them have Imployment abroad, they are obliged to return in a due Hour ; and whoever imploys them, agrees with the Master for the Wages, and pays them to him ; which, together with the Product of the Labours of the rest, he delivers to the Overseers every Friday in the Evening, who then take the Accounts from the Master; and add out of the Parish-stock, what is wanting for making Provision for the following Week. The Charge this Year in cloathing the Poor, upon placing them in the Workhouse, and buying Utensils, &c.

The general Method for employing them (besides what is abovementioned) is in spinning Jersey ; such as cannot spin, are set to knit Stockings for the rest, and one is appointed to teach the Children to read. The Product of their Labours, one Week with another, is about 14 s. The Charge of maintaining the Poor us'd to be about 250 l. is much greater than can be in future Years ; and yet the Overseer assures me, that he is confident the Parish will even this Year save 100 l.

Eden, in his 1797 survey of the poor in England, reported that the poor of St Martin's: are farmed by a man who receives from the parish £14 a week.There are 42 persons, principally old women and children, under his care. The farmer is a stocking manufacturer, and employs the Poor in spinning worsted, etc.They work in the summer from 6 in the morning till 8 at night, and in winter from 7 till 9, meal times excepted.The population falling within the union at the 1831 census had been 39,135 with parishes ranging in size from Castle View (population 149) to St Margaret's (23,954).The average annual poor-rate expenditure for the period 1833-5 had been £12,274 or 6s.3d. The new Leicester Board of Guardians had their first meeting on 12th July 1836 at the Guildhall, although subsequent meetings were held at St Martin's workhouse until a board-room at the new union workhouse came into use.
