Full description

Torbay HER record (SMR record). SDV361984.

The outline of barrack block depicted on Mercer's 1811 plan is clearly visible. Built between 1795-1800 one face of a stone external wall footing is visible in the centre of the south wall. The plan is similar to the four surviving barrack blocks in Fort No. 3 (SX95NW/4/22-25). East of the block is a concrete-capped well, or cistern which may be similar to the cisterns attached to the barracks in Fort No. 3 (SX95NW/4/12-14) [1][2]
