    Greenbank Police Station formerly Longfield House, this place seems to get confused with Greenbank Ambulance station which was demolished in 2004.

    On the 28th February 1935 Mr LA Dixon under secretary to the home department openend the new Police Headquaters and Magistrates Court at Greenbank, which was formerely Borough Prison.

    The former prison chapel on the first floor was converted into the magistrates court and in the west wing of the building was the weights and measures office.

    Now the building is pretty trashed and home to the homeless and herion addicts of Plymouth, used needles litter the place.

    In recent times the buildng has been subject for conversion into flats and also a supermarket was interested in the land.

    Interesting. We thought it was Greenbank Hospital... http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=47380 and I'm sure I saw NHS signs with my own eyes.

    Anyway, google turns up this http://www.plymouthdata.info/Police 9-Greenbank HQ.htm and http://www.plymouthdata.info/Prisons.htm (it's probably where the quotes are from) and it seems OK.

    So where's the hospital?...

    Looking at these plans now, it's not the same building. The hospital was 'demolished and replaced with a new housing estate'... http://www.plymouthdata.info/Hospitals-SDEC Greenbank.htm
