The orginal Pay Office was extended in 1808 when a fire-proof building with vaulted ceiling was added - probably the earliest example of such a building in a Naval dockyard. It contained a strong room and safe. Charles Dickens's father, John Dickens, worked here as a clerk before moving with his family to London in 1815.
