    I was in Macclesfield recently and they have a brand new TA Centre (open for 18 months) at a cost of 5m, which was closed under SDR. Allegedly it was fully recruited, thanks to the General Hospital in Macc. Perhaps it is time for it to be re-opened.

    You can find it next to the Fire Station. It is boarded up, but someone must be keeping an eye on it.

  2. Does the army still own it?

    Why did it close down in the first place? SDR

    They do and if you look at Macclesfield on the map, there isn't a TA Centre for miles around. Most odd.

    I heard that a developer tried to buy it, to replace it with flats, but there is no more planning permission being given in Macc at the moment.

  4. I served in that TAC until it was closed down, unfortunatly the good citzens of Macc could not be induced to serve and it closed in `99 I think. It definatly was not fully recruited, two units having had a go there.

    I think the MOD still own it, a lovely place to train in, better than the 1950`s monstosity we have to use now.
