The Keep (Armoury) to Hounslow Cavalry Barracks, Beavers Lane, Hounslow - Hounslow

Built in 1875, consisting of three storeys with four storey staircase towers at each end and in the centre of the south west front. Many windows retain heavy cast iron shutters with firing loops and massive bolts to the interior. The building has been unused for some years and the top storeys are now inaccessible. This is as a result of rainwater penetration from the rooftop parapet and blockages in the flat roof drainage rainwater pipes. There are currently no plans for repairs but discussions have begun concerning the future of the wider site.
