The newly built and refurbished building occupied by the sailors at Carlton Barracks, on the northern edge of Leeds city centre was opened by The Princess Royal. A new two-storey wing and accommodation block was built by Illingworth & Gregory Ltd, providing Ceres with new training and classroom facilities and 12 permanent bed spaces. 

The Princess Royal dedicated those facilities in front of civic dignitaries, government officials, The Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Plymouth and, most importantly, the ship’s company of HMS Ceres.
