History of the Hall

The Hall was built in 1866 as a Dissenters‘ meeting house and school, it later became a Reading Room and Lecture Hall and subsequently a Drill Hall for the Percy Volunteer Artillery. Bought by public subscription in 1920 as a war memorial hall, it serves as a village hall for the people of Warkworth and surrounding areas.
The Memorial Hall site originally included a three storey terraced house to the west located on Castle Street and a two bedroomed detached cottage to the east overlooking the burgages.The former was disposed of by the Trustees during the early 1970s and the latter in mid 2006.
