The Haslar Gunboat Yard is a unique site designed and built for the Royal Navy’s Gunboats from 1856 onwards.
The Yard includes two guardhouses (a Police Barracks and a Guardhouse) which is surrounded by a wall with two watchtowers and an entrance gate. Research has confirmed that Colonel Greene designed the gatehouses and wall. The design and detailing are of high quality and, although in poor condition, much of the original fabric survives. The importance of these structures is recognised as a Grade II* listing.
The Police Barracks are the most in need of attention and will be restored first.
