This is Preston Barracks in Brighton (Not the Fulwood Army Barracks in Preston) : In 1793, fearing Napoleon may invade England and take the shortest route to London by landing his troops near Brighton. Barracks for the infantry were built in Brighton’s Church Street and at the same time, a far larger site in the nearby village of Preston was developed for their supporting artillery and cavalry.
Apart from the lockups that are used by Brighton council and private firms, all that remains now are these two buildings that was once part of a huge, sprawling military base. The site has a very rich and colouful history. See first pic which shows the original size of the barracks. Go to this Website If you want to learn more.
Fell Into Preston Barracks
We literally fell in to the old Preston Barracks with its still working dumb waiter and upon entering the new building, we could hear voices and fumes were also filling our nostrils, turns out that there was a group of graffiti artists in there painting and spraying the walls! Visited with my Son in Law and Grandson.
