GV II

Militia officers' quarters, now houses. 1858, by Henry Goddard, architect, the county surveyor, for the Royal South Lincs Militia Regiment. Red brick, front lodges coursed rubble with limestone dressings, lateral stacks and slate hipped roofs. Parallel terraces of 10 single-depth houses each with front lodges, forming a courtyard closed by N house. EXTERIOR: 2-storey; 46-bay ranges, 5-window N block, 3-bay lodges. Stone lodges with pyramidal roofs and central doorways facing each other, and 2 windows to the street; parallel ranges each of ten 2-window houses, separated by a through passage with a window above; segmental-arches to doorways with overlights and flush 4-panel doors, some late C20 doors, and 6/6-pane sashes. Front lateral stacks to party walls: N block taller with central doorway, wider 6/6-pane sashes, the outer ones paired, connected to the side ranges by screen walls with doorways. INTERIOR: not inspected. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached screen walls with capped piers to the lodges form S entrance. HISTORY : following the Militia Act of1852, counties were required to construct secure barracks for storing arms and training for the local militia, including accommodation for NCOs. Goddard built similar barracks in Lincoln for the N Lincs regiment. An interesting example of domestic planning to provide secure accommodation, and part of an unusually complete group with the former 'keep' (qv).
