The excavated barrack buildings at Chesters lies in the north-east quadrant of the fort. The present buildings may date to a later phase of the fort (late 2nd or 3rd century).
Chesters was a cavalry fort and it appears that the troopers and their horses shared the accommodation, separated by a wooden partition.
A central gutter runs down the lane that lies between the two facing blocks.
Note the Ministry of Works ‘Barrack Block’ sign.
