News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Originally built as a hospital, the barracks opened in 1795, the building had to be rebuilt after being struck by lightning.  The Royal Marines School of Music moved in 1930 and is now a private housing estate.
