T o east, a rectangular projection enclosing the barrack store, with a similar tower in the centre of the long side. Approx 300m long. On the inner side, remains of single storey service buildings, some partly demolished. Towers contain stone spiral stairs. HISTOR Y: Built as a defensible barracks due to anxiety over civil unrest.
