Nice plans Kyn :)

It's a shame the barracks were demolished. A couple of years ago I think i remember a plaque outside the main gate, I'm not sure if it was for the barracks or something else...

Whilst looking for information about the Chattenden railway, I came across this 129 page PDF


http://www.medway.gov.uk/pdf/Built%20Heritage%20Volume%201-%20Baseline%20assessment.pdf

It lists all the structures at the barracks with maps and lots of other bits and bobs.

Sometime in the late 70s I did some work in the Chattenden Barracks telephone exchange which was located close to the parade ground and some admin offices. For our tea breaks we used to pop into the Naafi which was also nearby. However, looking at recent Google Earth images, the whole area seems to have been demolished.

Tuesday, September 16, 1873

A portion of the barracks at Chattenden Roughs is now completed. The barracks will form a square, and will consist of quarters for the officers and for the married and single men, who will be stationed there in charge of the new powder-magazines being built, in place of those at Upnor Castle, so long considered a danger to Chatham Dockyard.

Wednesday, August 13, 1873

A commencement will shortly be made in building the extensive barracks at 'Chattenden Roughs', near Upnor Castle, for the military from Chatham who will be stationed there to guard the new powder-magazines. The barracks will be sufficiently large to accommodate some hundreds of men. The powder-magazines will be on a very large scale.

From The Times.
