Middle Gates in 2007. This now disused gate used to open directly onto Plumstead Road. Having been concealed and protected behind metal sheeting for many years, workers who removed the sheeting in order to restore the gates discovered that the gates were missing. The building behind the gates is called Middle Gate House and now used as Council offices. Formerly, this pictured building was the storekeeper's house. Reusing most of the original buildings, the Arsenal property is now a mixed site encompassing both housing and industrial buildings. Click on photo for full-sized image.
