Drill Hall

Cheadle Drill Hall is behind the parish church. It adjoined Alcocks the builders and there was a smithy in the same road. The drill hall was built for the Territorials (Home Guard) in the 1920's. A local person recalls them using it for drill on Friday nights. 

The Drill Hall was used for training by the Territorial Army and it was purchased by Cheadle and Gatley UDC in the 1970s for recreational use.  It later became the Village Hall and is used by many local groups for meetings and other activities

In its recent past, the drill hall was renamed the Village Hall. Currently, it is used by the community for a variety of activities, including a children's playgroup, meetings of an evangelical church group and various dance classes. (2006)
