Royal William Yard

Royal William

Constructed between 1825 and 1831, Clarence and Brewhouse buildings are part of the Royal William Yard, one of British military history’s key complexes. Designed by Sir John Rennie as both a factory and supply depot for ships' victualling needs, here the Royal Navy refuelled with rum. It continued to supply right up to its closure in the early 1990s. The Yard is one of the finest industrial and military complexes in the country, built by Sir John Rennie in 1825-33 as a model factory and storage complex to supply the fleet with all its victualling needs. It consists of seven Scheduled Ancient Monuments (soon to be Grade I listed buildings) of monumental classicism. After being released by the MoD in 1994
The Award Winning conversion of Clarence is now complete and forms the first part of the residential development. Brewhouse provides the mixeduse, a combination of residential, exhibition space, restaurant and café providing in total a 130 apartments.
