Middlewich Road

G Company, 7th Territorial Force Battalion Cheshire Regiment

Kelly's Directories record the drill hall on Middlewich road, but in fact the building is behind the houses and shops which front Middlewich road and is reached by two small passageways; one is Foden's Terrace and the other is adjacent to the chapel. It is inconspicuous, but marked on OS maps of the 1960s.

It seems to have a drill hall and residential accommodation attached to the main building.

The drill hall is used by the Army Cadet Force. [2006]

Kelly's Directories record rifle butts at Arclid.

I am grateful to Mrs Condliffe of the Congleton Chronicle for the helpful information which enabled me to track down this drill hall. (GMR)
