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, however, is in particularly poor condition, threatened by extensive vegetative growth and continued deterioration of fabric. Discussions are at an early stage regarding repair and identification of a new use.
