Appraisal

The building is threatened with a real conservation deficit. It is suffering from an acute structural problem that could lead to full or partial collapse, and there is an immediate threat of further deterioration.

The Mulgrave Street Magazine is an early 19th century gunpowder store forming part of the barracks complex. While of robust vaulted construction, the building is poorly maintained. It is identified in the National Inventory as a rare survival of its kind. The structure is of significant historic importance and requires conservation works to prevent further deterioration.
