Originally built in the late 1930s, the barracks were designed to house 1500 people and cost nearly 2 million (36m today) to build. Renovated heavily over the years (adding internal walls in the late 1930s, a club in the 1940s, additional mess halls in the 1950s, a game area in the 1960s, and a remodel of the internal walls [along with the restructuring of a section to be designated specifically for women] in the 1970s]), they continued being used up until the surrounding installation was decommissioned. While multiple proposals for repurposing the area as a whole have been made, the majority of structures are being individually repurposed, resulting in those without tenants being left abandoned.












Apologies for the poor image, couldn’t get my phone to properly focus in that room

Sick shots! I love those long-dilapidated-hallway shots, and the one with the pool table is quite cool and spooky.

Any clue what that big room was (the one that your phone wouldn't focus for)? Bit hard to tell from the photo but it looks really neat.

Are you sure this is abandoned? This look about the same as the one I live in now.

The space in the blurry photo was a nightclub.

When the building it sits in was built, it was originally a gymnasium. It was converted to a club in the 1940s and was originally named the "White Hat Club". The club was later remodeled and renamed in the 1970s; while changes were made afterwards, the general 1970-s atmosphere remains. The remodel added a few new spaces - most notably a second dance floor and two additional bars.

Sweet shots! Were they all taken on your phone or just that one?

Most were taken on a phone. A few were taken on a point-and-shoot that does a far better job in natural lighting conditions.

Security wasn't particularly bad during my visits.

@inloc thanks for showing us around a historic location!

Definitely my favorite room of the place:


I also found one room still full of papers with files on individuals as well as training material.

Thank you @inloc for taking us to this spot, it has become relatively well known but I had never been here myself, and it was great to finally meet you and do some exploring together! Here are a few of my shots from that day as well as a follow up exploration. Looking forward to exploring again with you in the future!

Thanks for the shots. I've been wondering for YEARS what that club was like inside. A few years back someone had pix of their crew inside the upstairs area. Water continues to wreck the place I see. Last time I was there some scrappers had left their tools and a pile of metal behind.

Years ago I encountered a man removing the spotlights from the club and I'm just realizing now he was stealing them since that club has never reopened, if those are the ones by the soccer fields.
