Wellington Barracks / HMS Tamar [????-????] | Gwulo: Old Hong Kong

Wellington Barracks / HMS Tamar [????-????]

Current condition: 
Demolished

Early maps show the main building as a 'Military Hospital', then on later maps it is described as 'Wellington Barracks'. I believe it took its name from the Wellington Battery, which was built on the shoreline just to the North of this site.

  • 1856: Shown on map [1] as 'Military Hospital'.
  • 1889: Shown on map [2] as 'Military Hospital'.
  • 1930: Shown on map [3] as 'Wellington Barracks'
  • Today: Part of Harcourt Garden covers this site.

The Maps referenced here come from the 'Mapping Hong Kong' book:
