By 1884 a new magazine is shown on the 19C maps at this location probably due to changes in Health & Safety regulations. The survey found the remains of the building with three walls up to 2m high & an entrance in the southeast corner. A protective wall 1m high encircled the building with a 1m wide access gap. Other details: Site 228.
