GV II*

Alternatively known as: East Sea Store, ANCHOR LANE HM NAVAL BASE Ropery store. 1771, much altered mid-late C20. Red brick with some blue headers in English bond. C20 flat-topped mansard roof of plain tiles with roof light, replaces former double- pitched roof. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys, formerly with cellar; 7 bays. Ashlar and concrete plinth on south side. Buttresses to ground floor each with brick table and stepped offset heads. Windows have segmental brick arches, replacement soldier-brick arches on 2nd floor, projecting sills and C20 metal windows. Inserted large loading doors. Boxed eaves. INTERIOR: replacement floors, stairs and roof trusses. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: at south-east corner a bollard formed of an upended cannon barrel, probably early-mid C19 reused as bollard mid-late C19, with muzzle blocked. HISTORY: constructed as part of the rebuilding of the ropery after the fire of 1770; possibly used for storing tarred hemp before it was transferred to the ropery for laying. Though more altered than the roperies at either Chatham or Devonport, this is still one of the largest integrated groups of C18 industrial buildings in the country, and part of a group of late C18 stores.
