740-1/67/870 Royal Citadel: Cookhouse
Barracks cookhouse at fort. 1902-1905, by T Rogers Kitsell,
architect for the War Office. Dressed Plymouth limestone
brought to course; dry slate gabled roofs with stone coped
gables; dressed stone axial stack with moulded entablature
PLAN: rectangular plan plus short cross wing on the right and
C20 extension at rear.
EXTERIOR: single storey; 6:1:1-bay front. The 6 tall windows
of the main range break the eaves over transoms and with stone
alternate round and plain gables; fixed lights over horned
sashes, all with small panes. Rusticated round-arched doorway
to next bay and at far right is cross-wing gable end with
ventilator slit over 3-light mullioned and transomed window.
End elevations have similar detail.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
HISTORY: a garrison was included in the Citadel from its
rebuilding in the late C17. The old quarters were rebuilt
under the 1890 Barracks Act and this is, with the contemporary
Peninsula barracks Winchester, a rare architect-designed
barracks. The cook house was an important functional part of
this complete late Victorian barracks, and this is an
unusually richly-designed example.
