1023/7/10015 North perimeter wall extending approx 150m along N end of Fulwood
Perimeter wall. 1843-48, by Major T Foster, for the Ordnance Board. Snecked sandstone ashlar. Tall wall with half-round coping extends approximately 150m along N side, including blocked rifle holes giving field of fire up across former central entrance, and NW projecting corner giving similar cover to W side.
HISTORY: the perimeter wall originally had canted E and W sides covered by rifle slots in projecting corners at both ends, and formed a projecting triangle to the entrances in the N and S ends, also covered by rifle slots. The barracks was built in response to anxiety over Chartist agitation. Although sections have been lost, the surviving lengths form an important part of the original plan of the barracks, the only example of a defensible barracks in England. Part of the most complete example in Britain of the late C18 concept of barracks design. (PSA Drawings Collection, NMR: MCR 58).
