Late C19-early C20 Woolpack Battery on The Garrison, St. Mary's - Isles of Scilly (UA)

Late C19/early C20 battery. Generally good condition and secure but unoccupied since 2015. Converted to volunteer hostel accommodation in late C20/early C21 but now suffering from problems with water ingress into the former magazines, now dormitories. Discussions regarding repair and potential new uses are underway with the site owner, and the Local Authority.
