These barracks were completed in 1878 and named after Sir John Gaspard Le Marchant, who commanded the 99th Regiment of Foot in 1839. This Regiment amalgamated with the 62nd Regiment of Foot to form the Wiltshire Regiment. The Barracks were the headquarters of the Wiltshires from 1878 to 1959 and later became the regimental museum until the museum moved to The Close in Salisbury.

Also the RHQ of the Wessex Regiment in the 1970's and 1980's. A very pretty place in its time. I did my passing out parade on that parade ground in 1983.
