Full description

Royal Engineers Stores and Yard (149). Built after 1901, this complex of structures originally consisted of a yard with its rear made from dry stone walling and its front and sides consisting of iron railings. Inside is a brick-built building housing an office and store with access at the rear to a timber corrugated iron shed. At the rear of the yard was another brick store. Today (2002), railings have given way to a wall made from dense concrete blocks, the brick office/store survives, but the shed at its rear has been removed. On the site of the other store is now a larger version built in London Brick Company Common bricks.
