SY6873 THE CITADEL, The Verne 969-1/3/176 Chapel 21/09/78


Prison chapel, formerly Officers' Mess. c 1865. Possibly by Capt. W. Crossman, RE, general designer to The Citadel. Portland stone with roach stone rustication, slate roof. Long narrow block, main axis E/W. Central porte-cochere south side, 2+3 windows, all C20 steel casement, segmental-headed double doors in porte-cochere with arched openings, 2 to S and 1 to E and W. Modillion cornice and blocking course. Back of building plain, some repairs after wartime bomb damage, 3 eaves stacks with cappings. Interior much modified, but retains 3-arched screen to paired columns at east end. The detail is clearly from the same hand as Officers' Block B (qv); from remaining foundation walls to the north it would seem that a U-plan block was originally intended, but there is not evidence of further progress.
