1911 Admirality Depot Map


This map was produced by the Admiralty in 1911 to highlight the boundaries of Admiralty property and the areas held on lease.

The map shows the use of the buildings on the estate of the Deal Royal Marine Depot at that time and the number of servicemen allocated to each of the buildings. It clearly shows the four Barrack sites known as East Barracks, North Barracks, South Barracks and the Royal Naval Hospital, including the Infectious Section.

Also highlighted are the sites of the Drill Field, the Marine Schools, the Church, the Swimming Bath and numerous working locations. As you walk the trail we encourage you to use this map to help imagine the impact the Royal Marines had on these coastal towns a century ago.
