869/5/10015 Peninsula Barracks
05-SEP-00 (North side)


Barracks, possibly officers' quarters, now housing. 1901-5, restored c1995 to the designs of the architect Huw Thomas. Red brick with rear lateral stack and slate hipped roof. Georgian Revival style.
PLAN: Probably double-depth rooms with central stair.
EXTERIOR: 2-storey; 4:3:4-window range. Central pedimented section set forward, with clock set in oculus. Terracotta cornice. Gauged brick cambered arches to horned 6/6-pane sashes. Semi-circular arched central doorway, the outer blocks each having two of the original window openings deepened into doorways with overlights. Similar rear elevation; pedimented centre has rusticated doorway by Huw Thomas with rusticated pilasters. Paired sashes to the end elevations. INTERIOR: not inspected.
HISTORY: in the manner of most late nineteenth century officers' quarters such as those at Aldershot and Colchester at this time, overlooking the former parade square. This formed part of the Lower Barracks site, occupied from the mid nineteenth century as a hospital and prison and largely rebuilt 1901-5. It forms a complete functional assemblage of late Victorian/Edwardian barrack buildings, and contributes to the considerable overall significance of the Peninsula barracks site.
