SD53SW FULWOOD WATLING STREET ROAD

Armoury and store. 1870-1880. Sandstone ashlar with asphalt flat roof. Single-depth plan with front projecting corner stair towers.
EXTERIOR: 3 storey; 3:4:3-window range. Taller left-hand and level right-hand stair towers, plinth and dentil parapet, with flat-headed doorway and C20 door to the inner side of the right-hand tower; central section with 6/6-pane sashes, stairs have stepped glazed loops in 2 storeys to the left and 1 to the right, and 3 loops to the top floor. 3-window side ranges, and rear with 4 pairs of late C20 4/4-pane casements.
INTERIOR: has cast-iron columns and rolled metal joists, stair towers have dogleg stairs with metal balusters and moulded newels.
HISTORY: not shown on c1850 maps of the barracks, and similar to 1870s Cardwell armoury designs. Although the south-east barrack range has been lost, the original plan of 2 parade squares within a defensible perimeter wall is substantially intact, making Fulwood the most complete surviving example in England of the late C18 concept of barracks design.
