Former Infirmary Stables, Arborfield Garrison, Arborfield, Barkham - Wokingham (UA)

A specialised 'horse hospital' built 1911-12. The building is redundant by virtue of changes in army practices (reduced cavalry activity). A sustainable future needs to be found and repairs undertaken. Planning Permission has been granted for the development of Arborfield Garrison and this will include a requirement to repair the stables. Works to clear asbestos from the site and re- roofing of the stables with matching cement diamond tiles were carried out in 2017 and have been completed. An end use for the building is being considered and long term management / maintenance agreed.
