INTERIOR: store has a remarkably complete interior lined with boarding, divided into four by timber partitions with posts supporting transverse floor beams, flagged floor, an original central transverse dogleg stair to the back with uncut string and heavy stick balusters, and king and queen post roof. Furbisher's shop altered inside with a later left-hand stair, and original door surround to right-hand room. HISTORY: the Yard was laid out in 1720 by Colonel Lilly for the Board of Ordnance. Part of the late C18 expansion of the yard, the store is reported to have had wooden tramways and wall cranes; the furbisher's shop is a pair with the No.12 store ( qv). A notably unaltered example of a late C18 small naval store in the context of warehouse buildings of this period, within the best surviving C18 naval ordnance yard in the country.
