A little history of Admiralty Mews with thanks to Lyndon

In 1755 George Leith becomes a contractor to the Sick and Hurt Board of the Navy and in 1780 makes plans to build a Naval Hospital on land now known as Admiralty Mews.

The Admiralty acquire land for a burial ground and then a Naval Hospital at Deal; after a rebuilding project and conversion of buildings including The Dead House,  The Insane House and the Cook House were completed and the area occupied by 300 patients by 1814. The hospital was closed after the end of the Wars with France and The Royal Navy Coast Blockade for the Prevention of Smuggling was based in the Naval Hospital and South Barracks between 1816 - 1831.

The Coast Guard and Royal Marines used the hospital until the end of the Crimean War followed by The Depot, Royal Marines in 1861, and then a Depot Band in 1890 which then became the base for the Royal Naval School of Music and then The Royal Marines School of Music until disbanded in 1996.

In 1997 the land was sold to United Real Estate plc and planning permission granted in 1999 with building works starting in 2000.
