HISTORY: an unusually ambitious example of a guard house, to the Southgate Street entrance to the barracks. Lower Barracks was occupied from the mid nineteenth century as a hospital and prison attached to the Upper barracks, 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.
