Maker Heights Guard House, boundary wall and attached ancillary buildings, Maker-with-Rame - Cornwall (UA)

Built in 1804-1808 as a barracks for a line of earlier redoubts built to protect Devonport Dockyard in 1782. Altered in mid C19. Guard House in good condition and used as offices but several of the other buildings are in poor to bad condition, in particular the Straw Store, Wash House and Caponier. Now in seperate private ownership from the Barrack Block that forms the raison d'etre for this group of buildings.
