The Old 13th Cheshire Astley Volunteer Rifle Corps firing range, taken 5 years ago
The former target wall of the Astley Volunteer Rifle Corps. The unit itself (what we would call today a "Territorial Army" unit) was Dukinfield-based and lent its name to "The Old Thirteenth Cheshire Astley Volunteer Rifleman Corps Inn" in Stalybridge, the longest pub name in the UK.
