I came here with Elliot5200, Gabe and Indecisive Moment. The buildings have beautiful exteriors and although the contents have mostly been removed there are still many features to admire. The staircase in particular was stunning and the military records library contained beautiful mahogany cabinets for storing records, unfortunately the records have been removed now. The main building with the four turrets had most of the best stuff but the buildings behind were also accessible with a few rooms worth checking out such as the old bar. This was a nice chilled out wander for a couple of hours in good company.

Here's some history....

The Royal Military Academy at Woolwich was founded in 1741 at the Royal Arsenal. The need for more space led to a move to large new buildings on Woolwich Common in 1806, where cadets were taught mathematics, fortifications, French, chemistry, drawing and dancing. Among the hundreds of officers who graduated from the academy, probably the best known are Lord Kitchener and General Gordon of Khartoum. In 1945, the academy transferred to Sandhurst to merge with the academy there.

Durkan Group bought the Woolwich site by public tender in 2006. Many of the Woolwich buildings have since been converted and extended into 334 houses and apartments, including 150 for a housing association. Renovation work is currently ongoing.


Onto the pics....

Drove passed this place at the weekend and was really surprised to see it still not finished. Its been nearly a decade since we were first in there!! Also spotted alot of other places around there under some kind of renovation. Checked them out too?
