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.

  • Tracey Ireland Please can we restore the Drill Hall to its former glory. Wellingborough is not a new town, it has been in existence since Waendel the saxon, well over 1000 years ago. There is so much of its history that has been destroyed recently, where do we stop? Wellingborough will lose all of its character if we're not careful, we may as well go and live in Milton Keynes. I am proud to have been born and bred in Wellingborough and I love walking round it, but we'll soon have nothing green or historic to look at. Please listen to the voices pleading against bulldozing the Drill Hall.
