Drill hall on ashgate road
« on: July 03, 2018, 01:20:49 PM »
Hello everyone,ok I have 2 questions 1st one is does anyone have any pictures of the Victorian drill hall that was on ashgate road and post them up?It was the jubilee drill hall that was later on converted and called called the goldwell rooms.It had a magnificent main door with fancy stone carvings on it that were covered up and the frontage was also extensively covered up aswell
My 2nd question is does anyone know if the slightly later Edwardian building used by the Sherwood Foresters in the same road is to be demolished or not?

Cheers for that fly (y)
I'd not seen them before.I still don't know about the fate of the surviving building so I've got our lass on the case as she works next to it.I hope it's not to be demolished.

I heard/read somewhere, that it's going to be apartments/flats. I can't remember where  >:(
Have you looked on the councils planning applications pages?

No I've not tried the council planning Paige but I'll give it a go.Converstion would be better than demolition for sure!
