    History is a little sketchy but this is what I have managed to find about this structure:

    "A rifle club, newly-established in 1852, probably formed the nucleus of the Rifle Volunteer Corps set up in 1859. The marquess of Anglesey provided a shooting range at the north end of Burton meadow. When the volunteers were assigned to line regiments in 1883, Burton became the headquarters of a battalion of the Prince of Wales's (North Staffordshire) Regiment, later a Territorial Army unit. "

    The scale of this thing is huge which you dont realise until you get right up to it. Also its remained graffiti and chav free as its pretty much out of range. Its not the best explore in the world but certainly worth a look if your in the area.
