SD53SW FULWOOD WATLING STREET ROAD
1023/7/10006 Building 37, Fulwood Barracks
Store. 1842-1848. Sandstone ashlar with slate roof. Single-depth plan.
EXTERIOR: single storey; 9-window range. Coped end gables; symmetrical front with segmental-arched openings, a central doorway with ashlar surround to 9-pane overlight and C20 door, and horned 6/6-pane sashes. Left-hand gable has similar doorway to the left and single window.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
HISTORY: one of a number of buildings erected against the perimeter wall, typically for fodder, forges, equipment stores etc. Built in response to anxiety over Chartist agitation. Although the south-east barrack range has been lost, the original barracks plan of 2 parade squares within a fortified perimeter wall is substantially intact, making Fulwood the most complete surviving example in England of the late C18 concept of barracks design.
