The Canteen, Fulwood Barracks

Canteen. 1843-48, by Major T Foster, for the Ordnance Board. Rock-faced sandstone ashlar with gable stacks and slate roof. Single-depth plan.

EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; 6-window range. Coped gables, with central and right-hand entrances with steps up to C20 doors, and flat-headed windows with mid-late C20 joinery and glazing; a shallow full-height projection to the left-hand side. The right-hand return has 3 inserted ground-floor windows, and the rear has 6-window range, the ground-floor windows largely obscured by a mid C20 single-storey extension.

INTERIOR: not inspected.

HISTORY: the barrack was built in response to anxiety over Chartist agitation. Although the south-east range has been lost, the original plan of two parade squares within a defensible perimeter wall is substantially intact, making Fulwood the most complete example in England of the late C18 concept of barracks design.
