HISTORY: the original barracks hospital, though much altered internally. Hounslow is the only surviving barracks of the first national barrack building campaign in England, authorised by Pitt for internal policing of major cities. The hospital is part of the original plan of the barracks, and one of only three barracks hospitals of this period, with those at Higher barracks, Exeter, and Poundbury barracks, Dorchester. Included for historic interest.
