in 1793; mid C19 alteraions. Red brick with some mid C19 yellow stock brick; slate
hipped roof. Long two sorey block originally probably of ten bays with subsequent
modifications, the two bays at either end projecting forward to form shallow terminal
pavillions. The southern pavillion probably formed officer's quarters. The northern
eight bays, including the northern pavillion, originally had stabling on the ground
floor with barrack rooms above reached by an external stair at north end of building.
Original openings appear to have been wide with segmental heads, the original
fenestration pattern in the front elevation surviving to the greatest extent at north
end; the northern three bays retain their stable entries, dating in their preent form
probably from early to mid C19, with centre doorways with side and overlights. The
original centre five bays were modified on ground floor with present early to mid C19
stock bricks and the insertion of the present several narrower segmentally headed sash
windows with glazing bars. Further south, two modern doorways with flat canopies on
ground floor, the southern one with two doorways. There are similar fenestration
patterns in the rear elevaion; the first floor is masked externally by the roof of the
large drill shead which retains its iron trusses. Inside No 20, the first floor of the
north end of the barracks is supported on the original cast-iron columns. In the south
pavillion, and southern end of former stabling wings, the staircase, doors, ceiling
cornices and other internal features survive from the late C18 to mid C19 officers'
