Buller Barracks

Date of construction 1965-1970

Buller Barracks took the name of the old Buller Barracks after General Rt Hon Sir Redvers Buller VC, GCB who is regarded as the father of the Army Service Corps.

Buller Barracks were built at a cost of £2,750,000 and designed to house the Royal Corps of Transport. Buller Barracks were opened by the Duchess of Gloucester, the General Commandant of the Corps, on 11 July 1970. 'God's Acre' was retained as the centrepiece for the new Buller Barracks.

Sleeping quarters were attached to social areas and dining rooms whilst close by there were administration buildings, training areas, garages, workshops and stores.

Still in use.
