ABANDONED BLACKPOOL POLICE STATION, BONNY STREET, BLACKPOOL, LANCASHIRE - MARCH 2021

896375





Brief History:
Blackpool police station was built by Roger Booth in 1968. Before the advent of explicit systems in Lancashire, it had become common practice to re-use already rationalised details and building systems. The last bespoke police station to be designed was Chorley (1967), accompanied by a magistrate’s court, this station building was almost replicated at Bury (though Bury also had a nuclear bunker and shooting range in the sub-basement!) and the court informed a very similar construction in Leyland.

Eventually, police stations in Skelmersdale, Morecambe, St. Helens, Preston, Blackpool and Wigan were all constructed from the same system, developed by the R&D group in collaboration with a local manufacturer. In the initial stages the buildings were conceived as a kit of parts, the assembly of which would be specific to the particular site. The ‘Elemental Design Components’ consisted of operations wing, cell wing, basic ground floor, upper floor plates, service cores and chimneys. In the 1966-67 County Architect’s Report various configurations of these elements were presented as models to demonstrate the flexibility of the system.

Visit:

Blackpool bonny street police station is about to be returned to the dust, to make way for a new multi million pound regeneration project, so lets go and take a look around before its too late. A beautiful brutalist building, one street back from the promenade and tourist hotspots. Join me on a unique and original urban explore pov street photography session. The place is literally falling to bits. It was not possible to get inside, but there is more than enough to keep you busy around the structure and underneath in the car parks. It will be a sad day when its levelled. An awesome urbex experience. Highly recommended.

I remember working up on the roof there a few years back before the police moved out, the roof amazingly had no guardrails or edge protection and within seconds of me accessing it I was dive bombed by a very angry seagull. It turns out they were nesting up there and didn’t take too kindly to any visitors...
