Mutilated Defensible Barracks.  Fuji F11
5th January 2013

I was shocked today to see a mutilated image of the venerable Defensible Barracks used in an advert on TV today.

I spent many a happy hour as a child, playing in the moat (often chasing after the goat which lived down there) and looking for golf balls that had been lost from the nearby golf course.

The picture is quite a recent one as I noticed when I was last there they have cleaned off the Ivy and replaced the door; the old door was becoming rather 'picturesque'.

Barracks taken in May 2011.
