Ladysmith Barracks

I’m just old enough to remember when this barracks was still open. Or at least I remember that there wasn’t a housing estate behind the archway. There has been for many years now. Only this arch and gate remains from the original barracks built in 1845. It finally closed in 1960.


  1. Rather weird to look through the gates and see washing hanging out in a suburban garden.

  2. Wow welcome back! I'm just moseying through old favourites on my iPhone , I haven't checked your blog at home since you went AWOL !
