SX4654NW HIGH STREET, Stonehouse 740-1/55/809 (North side) 01/05/75 Former Royal Naval Hospital: North Gateway & Store and attached walls (Formerly Listed as: HIGH STREET, Stonehouse Royal Naval Hospital: North Gateway and Store)

GV II

North gateway into former Naval Hospital, and adjoining store. 1758-65, designed for the Navy Board by Alexander Rovehead. Plymouth limestone rubble with limestone architraves and other dressings; corrugated iron roof. Parallelogram on plan with central carriageway running parallel to end walls, the entrance broken forward to outer side, the passage originally fitted with both inner and outer gates. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; each elevation is a nearly symmetrical 8-window front, the windows bricked up except for windows with sloping jambs grooved for louvres. Full-height round archway has imposts as short strings; wrought-iron gates with spear-head finials. There is an attached dog-leg flight of stone steps to a raised platform to the right of the archway at both front and rear. INTERIOR: not inspected. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: high rubble wall with ramped coping to right of building and another length of perimeter wall at right angles to rear left linked to the Official Residences which contained the Admiral's House (qv). These walls were designed to prevent the patients from escaping. HISTORY: this building faced the jetty where patients were landed, and contained stores for hair and bedding, hence the louvred windows. It stands on the main N-S axis across the hospital. Part of an outstanding and complete military hospital complex. (Morrison K: Royal Naval Hospital, Stonehouse: Cambridge: 1992-: 100373).
