Case Store

Storage of empty packing cases. The case stores at Priddy's Hard are all grouped around the magazine complex that developed from the late 18th century around its small harbour, and all date from the second half of the 19th century.  The introduction of shells into Naval service to replace gunpowder revolutionised both the operations of the main Naval depots and the development of Naval ships and fortifications. Each shell was individually packed into its own wooden box before being taken aboard ship.
