St Martins Hospital was built between 1836 and 1838 as the Bath Union Workhouse. Model plans were designed by the architect to the Poor Law Commissioners, Samuel Kempthorne, for the City of Bath Architect George P Manners. The unusual hexagonal style of the building with Y shaped wings is only found elsewhere in Britain in Abingdon - another Kempthorne design. The hospital chapel to St Martins, designed by Manners in a Gothic Revival style, was opened in 1846 after the foundation stone was laid in 1843. The remarkable work of the chapel's builder is commemorated by a plaque on the chapel wall - "To record the services of John Plass, an inmate of the workhouse who, at the age of 78, working with much zeal and industry, laid all the stone of this building". Mr Plass died at the age of 82 in 1849 and is buried on site.
