I know where the Drill Hall was in that particular town, I think. Unfortunately there are two records; would a small town really have had two drill halls? One either side of a river? or has someone mis-spoke?
I thought gnomes became extinct in about 1730.
I bet life doesn't get any weirder with dope.
Gwyn, if this is Northwich, then there are two listed.
The Cheshire Regiment had premises in Darwin Street, whilst the Cheshire Yeomanry lived in Navigation Road.
Typical Cheshire affluence, most towns made their territorials share.
If this isn't Northwich, then it's the Cheshire Steam Laundry and Chapel. I have a fine photo of a pub in Birmingham that may have been a drill hall, had it not stood half a mile up the road........ It happens.
Cheshire. Home of gnomes. Can we call them that? Vertically challenged horticulturalists? Dope may just bring some focus and reality to this mad, PC world.
Pointy hat and a five-skin of skunk. Yeah.........
