Initially, a larger site on Dog Kennel Hill was considered, but eventually the replacement was built on the old site at a cost of more than £5,000. However, when the fund ran out, the Poor Law Commissioners finally gave way and allowed, temporarily at least, out-relief for the able-bodied in return for manual labour such as stone-breaking.

Also in 1723, St Nicholas' parish erected a workhouse on Gillyflower Hill. Economic conditions improved in 1838, leading to a fall in numbers in the workhouse, and the re-imposition of the prohibition on out-relief to the able-bodied.

On 22 July 1209 the Crusader army arrived at Béziers on the periphery of the area in the Languedoc where Cathars flourished.

There were believed to be around 200 Cathar Parfaits in the town among a much greater population of sympathetic Catholics.

By 1808, the building had deteriorated and the parish began to plan for a new workhouse. A public relief fund was also established in the city and raised £4,000 allowing hundreds of adults and children to be fed each day at the workhouse.It was here that the abbott-comander gave the famous command "Kill them all - the Lord will recognise His own" See sepate sections below on: Address: Chteau de Beziers Boulevard Jean Jaurès (Plan del Castel), 34500 Béziers Hérault France Contact Cathar Castle Tours Tel from the US: 010 42 Tel from the UK: 01 42 Tel from France: 0468 201142 Tel other: 42 [email protected]éziers (Occitan: Besièrs) is a town in the Hérault department in the Languedoc in southern France.The town is located on a small bluff above the river Orb, about 10 km (6.2 mi) from the Mediterranean.Eden, in his 1797 survey of the poor in England, reported that: Nottingham contains three parishes. The following March, a new Board of Guardians with an anti-Poor Law majority tried to delay completion of the workhouse but were eventually forced to go ahead with it.In 1779, the population was 17,711 and is supposed to be now (May, 1795) about 22,000. The result was that the union, which felt itself saddled with a workhouse much bigger than the city needed, thereafter offered the absolute minimum of co-operation with the central authorities.

In the Middle Ages Béziers belonged to the Viscounts of Carcassonne.
