Normanton - West Riding

Drill Hall, The Bank

'C' 4 King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry
4th Battalion King’s Own Yorkshire Light Infantry C Company

This drill hall is now Carlton House, which seems to be sheltered accommodation. It is not easy to discern its original use, but the remains of the wall at the rear (a low wall with half-windows remaining) suggest a greater structure. (Visited July 2008)
