Initially constructed in circa 1930, as a replacement to the St Gregory’s Barracks, in Sturry, it became the new depot for the two battalions of the 3rd (East Kent) Regiment of Foot, and former home to Home Counties Brigade 1960. It has also served as the Regimental Headquarters for the Queen's Regiment in 1966, for the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment 1992, the Royal Regiment of Scotland (the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders) in 2003. The Barracks closed in February of 2015.

At time of taking these photos, there were some secca's on patrol.. yet is a large site for one guard!

Purchased by Taylor Wimpy, the site is currently being revolved.

Particularly liked the first picture. Typical Naval architecture, with similarity to Priddy's Hard & Holton Heath.

Thank you.. Nearly all the internal shots are from inside that main building. It was the most architectural pleasing.. (Just wished I had taken a few more.. Oh well, such is the nature of the beast!) One can see the main part from the road.

good effort and the first one to post this place, I wondered if anyone had paid it any attention, I only drove by recently to see half the site demolished which has happened fairly fast since complete closure. :thumb

Yes, I agree with Obscurity, would be a waste of time, as Is almost completely knocked down. As I mentioned in my report, there are scca's on patrol, all the time!..
Even the hole in the fence has been sealed!..
