About Newcastle Armoury

Newcastle made the decision to build an Armoury during the 1870’s when there was a threat of war against Zululand. The Armoury was built and provided a home for local volunteers and those in service. It is still and was then being used as a meeting point too.

Winston Churchill himself spent the night at Newcastle Armoury as a prisoner of the Boer forces in 1899. This fascinating building is filled with history and is open to the public to view the military memorabilia. If these walls could talk they could tell many an exciting tale about the goings on behind and surrounding this historical building.
