Stoughton Barracks, Guildford
Stoughton Barracks, Guildford
This is the keep of Stoughton Barracks, built in 1876 as part of the army reforms carried out by Edward Cardwell, Gladstone's Secretary of State for War between 1870 and 1874, hence its nickname of Cardwell's Keep. Cardwell decided that each army regiment should be associated with a locality and Guildford was chosen as the headquarters of the 2nd Regiment of Foot – ‘The Queens’, one of the founding regiments of the British Army. In 1881 it became the Queen’s Royal West Surrey Regiment. In 1959, when it amalgamated with the East Surreys to become the Queen’s Royal Surrey Regiment, it left Stoughton. The Barracks then became a Regional Control Centre until the MOD moved out in 1983. It then remained derelict until being converted to residential use in 2000.
