Cardwell's Keep
Cardwell's Keep
Cardwell's Keep from the south-east with the gates to the former Stoughton Barracks. Named after Sir Edward Cardwell, Gladstone's Secretary for War who put forward the policy that each county town should have a regiment associated with it, in this case the Queen's Royal 2nd Regiment of Foot, later renamed the Queen's Royal (West Surrey) regiment. The barracks were completed in 1876 under the supervision of Lieutenant Elliott Wood. The keep is built to the same design as one in Reading. Behind the keep is an open square, formerly the parade ground surrounded by the barrack housing. Both the keep and the housing have been converted to private dwellings. The actor Michael Caine will be familiar with this building as it was here that he trained before going to the Korean War.
