Scarborough Parish Information, from Bulmers' Directory,1890:

‘The Barracks for the Artillery Militia Depot is on the Scarborough and Whitby road, one mile north from the Market Place, and is situated in Throxenby township. It is a square pile of brick building, erected in 1861-2 by the North and East Ridings, and has been rented by the Government since 1877, at a yearly rental of £108.’

This is a brief extract from a long entry. However, as this was a Regular Army artillery barracks, it is outside the scope of the project.
