Redmire’s drill hall was built for the Dales Volunteers during the Napoleonic wars. Until recently it was a post office, but is now a guest house. This is corroborated by various online sources.
An article in the Newcastle Courant, December 5th, 1879, quoted on the redmire.net website, says that the Redmire town hall ‘is not a very imposing building, and was originally built as a drill hall’. The website of the Old Town Hall Guest House, Redmire, says that it was constructed as a drill hall in 1862, became a public venue, was converted into a single storey house with a shop and post office attached in 1966 and in 2005 it was completely converted into a two-storey house.
