Me and @Smiffyboi explored the abandoned police station in Brentwood little over a week ago, we had been told the site had 24/7 security with frequent police patrols but on the day we went we didn't encounter a single person for the 3 hours we spent there.
- The Police Station was built in 1937.
- The Police Station closed to the public in April of 2016 and was finally vacated by the police in December of 2017, it closed due to the recent budgets cuts.
- 15 Police Stations were also closed due to the £63 million spending but Brentwood Police Station was the one of nine to be closed permanently.
- Residential development is soon to be in the works along with 70-100 dwellings as part new builds,and part conversion of existing buildings.
I had been wanting to do this explore for several months now with @Smiffyboi & @RoraTheExplorer but we had never got round to it but randomly a day before we all decided we would give it a go. When we got there we expected to see 24/7 security out front as it is a Police Station but there was no one to be seen. A quick trip to the petrol station for some drinks and a sandwich and we headed round back to find a way into the grounds, next time we are going to check the weather because like idiots we went on the hottest day of the year...
Before we was about to climb over we saw camera's attached to the building but guessed they were not active anymore so we took our chances, once we had gotten under a fence we headed straight towards the windows to see if any would open and by surprise one did and just like that we was inside.
Here's what we found inside:
Anyways, here's a video I recorded of the police station, if you do enjoy it don't feel afraid to give a like and a comment on the video, if you think there is areas I can improve please comment on the video as that's very much appreciated!
