Raglan Gatehouse, also referred to as Raglan Guardhouse or Raglan Main Gateway has been recently sold through Bradleys Online Auction for £25,000 over the guide price of £300,000. This Grade II listed building was formally used as the main entrance into the historic, Raglan Barracks.
Raglan Barracks was built between the years of 1853-1858 at the time of the Crimean Wars and was named after one of the Allied Commanders of that conflict, Lord Raglan. The grand gateway into the barracks was designed by Captain Fowke RE, an imminent architect of the period; a well-known design of his being the Albert Hall in London.
On passing through the Gateway, when it was in full use, the immediate view would have been an enormous parade ground, with army buildings around the perimeter. When now writing this, the entire plot is now replaced with housing however the name has stayed in local memory, as residents still refer to the area as ‘Raglan’. The Grade II listed building was sold with planning permission already granted with the building, an ideal opportunity for the new owners to be able to develop this historic landmark and therefor expand the local area within Plymouth.
