ⓘ Hightown Barracks

The barracks were built in the Fortress Gothic Revival Style and completed in 1877. Their creation took place as part of the Cardwell Reforms which encouraged the localisation of British military forces. The barracks became the depot for the two battalions of the 23rd Royal Welch Fusiliers. Following the Childers Reforms, the regiment evolved to become the Royal Welch Fusiliers with its depot in the barracks in 1881.

Many recruits were enlisted in the barracks at the beginning of the First World war and the Denbighshire hussars also moved their headquarters there just before the war. The barracks were also used by commandos during the Second world war. Royal Welch Fusiliers merged with the Royal regiment of Wales to form the Royal Welsh in 2006 and troops from the 3rd battalion the Royal Welsh regiment left the barracks for the last time in November 2013. Although the barracks continued to be used 101 battalion Royal electrical and mechanical engineers, was confirmed in 2017 that battalion 101 would be to move to Bristol.

The company officer of the University of Wales academic building is also based in the barracks.
