Buildings and structures originally located in the yards include accommodation such as cell blocks, solitary apartments, guards’ apartments and the matron’s cottage; and ancillary buildings and elements such as: laundries, cook houses, medical quarters, latrines, assorted workshops and a chapel.
While the majority of these structures no longer exist, in terms of visible fabric, they are still evidenced in part by below-ground archaeological features, including foundations, footings and potential artefact deposits. Lines of gabions, crushed rock and steel plates have been used to indicate the positions of features in the areas open to the public.
The conservation management plan analyses and assesses the cultural heritage significance of the place, and provides policies and strategies to guide future management, use and conservation activities at the site.
