'The drill hall and armoury
of the E Co. 4th Territorial Force Battalion Northamptonshire Regiment
are in Great Park street.' (Kelly, 1910)
A Volunteer Rifle Corps (I
& K Companies 1st Volunteer Battalion Northamptonshire Regiment) was
established here in 1859, the second company being formed in 1877;
the muster roll for the year 1902 shows a total of 200 men, all of
whom are efficient. The drill hall and armoury are in Church street.'
The building was acquired by Wellingborough Council in 2004 and let to a charity, the Daylight Centre Fellowship, for use as a community resource, including training, education and a cafe.
It is due to be demolished in 2010 as part of the first phase of the town centre redevelopment.
Thank you to Alan Harland of the Daylight Centre Fellowship for supplying information.
