Redmire - North Riding

Adjacent to Village Green

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 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.
