    The barracks were founded in the mid 1800's and have evolved over the years to what we see now. Meanee Barracks was formally home to 2nd Battalion The Parachute Regiment Hyderabad Barracks was formally home to 3rd Battalion The Parachute Regiment. Closed in 2008 due to a new monster barracks built about a mile away. The copper/lead thieves have been in, along with teenagers and explorers ;)

    Both of these are within the same walled area right in the middle of Colchester. Visted recently with Fieldy, with the light fading I didn't get many decent pictures. Heres a little taster.
