SD53SW FULWOOD WATLING STREET
1023/7/10007 Building 32, Fulwood Barracks
Store. 1842-1848. Sandstone rock-faced ashlar with slate roof. Single-depth plan.
EXTERIOR: single storey; 9-window range. Coped end gables; symmetrical front with segmental-arched openings, central and outer doorways 1 bay from the ends, the middle one blocked with an ashlar surround, with 9-pane overlights and C20,doors, and homed 6/6-pane sashes. Left-hand gable has a central blocked doorway with ashlar surround and flanking sashes, the right-hand window formerly a doorway.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
HISTORY: one of a number of buildings erected against the perimeter wall, typically for fodder, forges, equipment stores etc. The barracks was 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.
