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.

  • Prof Andrew Porteous A significant piece of Wellingborough's heritage.

  • Shirley J. Gordon Too much of old Wellingborough has been destroyed. This building should be restored and put to use. Possibly for functions?

  • margaret walker This is a valuable building and needs to be preserved and used again to benefit the town of Wellingborough
