Wellesley-Barracks

Wellesley-Barracks -The barracks was built in the Fortress Gothic Revival Style as a depot for the 33rd and 76th Regiment's. On 1 April 1873 the Depot was established, with construction completed in 1877. On 1 September the Depot Companies of the 33rd and 76th Regiments marched in. Their creation took place as part of the Cardwell Reforms which encouraged the localisation of British military forces. In 1881, as part of the Cardwell reforms, the 76th Regiment was merged to become the 2nd Battalion of the Duke of Wellington's.
