HQ High St, Burton on Trent Plus C Squadron Staffs Yeomanry Volunteers

Burton was the headquarters of a battalion of the Prince of Wales's (North Staffordshire) Regiment, later a Territorial Army unit.

In 1871 the rifle corps had an armoury in the former museum in High Street. By 1892 there was a drill hall, which in 1900 occupied a former skating rink at the south end of Burton Meadow.

A building behind the magistrates' court in Horninglow Street was used as a drill hall by 1919, and it was still used by the T.A. in 2000.
