Clive, I think you are looking at the wrong siding. The one going inside the barracks boundary is the lower dead-end spur.

1904 I believe, the plans that followed were the proposal for the Church so they are very early.

Great plan Kyn. Interesting to see the naval barracks had its own railway siding off the dockyard line.

If its that siding in the last photo it runs into the Receiving Store in the Dockyard and looks to be outside the Barrack boundary line. It still probably handled stores for the Barracks being sited very close to the Barracks' Dockyard Gate.

What's the date of this plan please Kyn?

So it did, I hadn't noticed that.  Stores deliveries maybe?

Wooden floor?

The pipe work etc is round the other side.  I thought this was changing rooms but they were alongside the pool.  There is also an office next door, so this room doesn't seem to have a purpose!

I can't make out what that is on the floor in that second photo. It looks like its the base for something but what?
