GV II*

Alternatively known as: West Hemp House, ANCHOR LANE HM NAVAL BASE Hemp store, and bollard, now store. Store dated "GR 1111771 "; much altered mid-late C20. Red brick with some blue headers in English bond. C20 flat-topped mansard roof of plain tiles with rooflight replaces former double-pitched roof. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and cellar. 18 bays. Ashlar plinth on south side. Buttresses to ground floor each with brick table and stepped offset head, a cannon-barrel bollard sunk against the north- western most buttress. Windows have segmental brick arches, replacement soldier-brick arches on 2nd floor, replacement concrete sills, and C20 metal windows. Large, inserted, C20 loading doors with folding metal doors. 2 pedestrian doors on north side. East gable has blue headers picking out royal initials, date, flag and crown. INTERIOR: replacement rivet ted steel roof trusses; mid-late C20 steel- framed internal structure. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: at south-west corner a bollard formed of an upended cannon barrel, probably early-mid C19 reused as bollard mid-late C19, with muzzle blocked. HISTORY: originally called the West Hemp House, constructed as part of the rebuilding of the ropery after the fire of 1770. It is similar in design to the adjacent Nos 15 and 17 Stores (qqv). Though much altered, compared with the roperies at either Chatham or Devonport, this is still part of one of the largest integrated groups of C18 industrial buildings in the country, and part of a group with the other late C18 ropery buildings (qqv)...
