Drill Hall


Early Modern


C19


Demolished Building


In 1879 a drill hall was constructed on Livingstone Road for the training of local military divisions and beneath it a large bottle (discovered in 1926) was buried as a time capsule containing two Sunderland newspapers, coins and a list of officers from the Rifle Volunteer Corps. The drill hall was later occupied by branches of the Durham Light Infantry and the Territorial Army.
