Former Royal Naval Academy (Buildings 1/14 and 1/116-9), HM Naval Base, Portsmouth - Portsmouth, City of (UA)

One of the oldest structures in the Dockyard, this building is a Georgian forerunner of the Britannia Royal Naval College at Dartmouth. This building has long been vacant. Natural ventilation and background heating has been introduced, reducing damp levels. Remedial works have reduced water ingress and the dry rot appears to be dying back. If the HMS Nelson Ward Room is relocated into the historic dockyard this building would be brought back into use for officer accommodation and facilities. This decision is awaited. Asbestos has been found in the roof.
