Save Our Drill Hall!

"We hereby ask that Wellingborough Borough Council ensures the safe keeping of The Drill Hall and that it remains part of any future development of the site."

The building reflects the character of Wellingborough and is very much part of the towns heritage. Built from local ironstone in the 1870's as a private house it then became home for the minister of the United Reformed Church. During the First World War it was used as a nursing home and then a training base for the Territorial Army.
Since being acquired by Wellingborough Council in 2004 the building has been allowed to fall into disrepair.

  • Anonymous A historic ironstone building in a prominent site which should be brought back into use.

  • Paul Dickin Wellingborough Councillors - are you a total bunch of philistines? How many historic buildings are you going to bulldoze before you realise you're destroying the town's character? Restore this lovely building and put it to good use like you should have done with the Corn Exchange. Or is your vision for the town to turn it into poundland central?

  • baz liffen Certainly worth saving. Not much left of old Wellingborough as it is.
