Probably one of the Dockyards most famous set of buildings, the Officer's Terrace, a row of twelve houses built between 1722-1731 to accomodate the principal Officers of the Yard and their families. They replaced earlier accomodation from the Stuart period. The ground floors consisted of offices, the first floor reception rooms and the second floor bedrooms. Each house had it's own walled garden seperated from the houses by Church Lane:
