Window, East Magazine

Built in 1814, the East Magazine was meant to be a gunpowder store and has two-metre-thick walls. Not long after construction the British Army realised that its brick walls could not support the weight of its bombproof vaulted roof, and the roof was removed in 1824. A second storey was added at the same time, and it continued to serve as a storehouse for weapons and other equipment.
