First Used by elements of 7 Regt RA which had guard duties at 51 Div HQ in Delbrueck and at  what was to become 5 CIC at Staumuehle and became demonstration support Regiment for training on Sennelager Range.  

Was last used before hand back by Mobile Civilian Labour Groups, War Dog Patrol Group in sp Paderborn Gar and Depot 90,
and the 1 War Dog Trg Regt (RAVC).

Located at Badstrasse in Schlangen Kreis Lippe:  view here Map or Satellite:  https://www.google.de/maps/place/Badstra%C3%9Fe+2,+33189+Schlangen/@51.8118398,8.8381137,140m/data=!3m1!

The barrack site was handy for Range Access and explains why the southern military ring road was extended to junction with Mühlenstrasse just south of Tin City.  (Not least as long as the MSO Supt Mess was in Normandy Barracks!)

- Explore on the Satellite link!

Once vacated it was quickly snapped up be the local authority (Schlangen is in Kreis Paderborn) and used to house the surge of ethnic germans from the east but now, under private ownership, most buildings (wooden barrack type) removed.

Located at Badstrasse 2 in Schlangen Kreis Lippe:  view here Map or Satellite:  https://www.google.de/maps/place/Badstra%C3%9Fe+2,+33189+Schlangen/@51.8118398,8.8381137,140m/data=!3m1!

switch to satellite view and explore to Bad Lippspringe (Where 21 Army Group HQ, 2nd Army Sp Coy and a number of other cap badges were 1945) and the Sennelager Range areas to the east.

anyone with a map of the area (any Grid) needs to plot the Lat 51 deg 48 mins 43 secs N /long 8 deg 50 mins 17 sec E coords on the map (lat long identities are along the frame edges of the map sheet)

Decimal to Deg Min Secs conversion here: https://www.pgc.umn.edu/apps/convert/

May I ask where you found the name of Balaclava Barracks, Schlangen? I have never heard of them before and they are not listed on any barrack lists that I have seen. Balaclava Barracks existed in Lingen (occupied by the 8 Hussars), so I am thinking that the name was very short-lived.

I have a 1947 book of the BAOR Training Centre, and although Schlangen is mentioned as the home of 'One Field Battery RA employed as Demonstration Troops', no barrack name is given, unlike parts of the Training Centre occupying Normandy Barracks, Dempsey Barracks, Barker Barracks and Crocker Barracks.
