Site Description Llanion Barracks, designed to house a battalion of 1,000 infantry, were planned in 1899 and completed in 1904, replacing an earlier hut camp built during the Crimean war emergency. Built of red brick, each of the four blocks had verandas running across the full length of their south-facing upper floor levels. It was the first barracks to be constructed with a separate area for cooking and ablutions and was one of the most modern in the country.
