Forecourt railings and gates to Red Barracks, and Gate Lodge, Frances Street, Woolwich SE18 - Greenwich

Railings and entrance gateway and lodge to the former Red Barracks (1858-60 but now demolished). Structural repairs and repointing to the small watch tower to the north were completed in 2013. The railings, piers, and gate piers are generally in good condition. The gate lodge is in very poor condition, although the Local Authority has removed debris and most of the vegetation threatening the building. However, the main structure is derelict and continues to deteriorate. The Local Authority and Historic England are in discussion regarding potential approaches to secure its repair and new use.
