    Wealdstone Police Station

    Interesting little building on the high street, annoyingly empty but stairs case and cell makes it worth a post. Cheers MR for driving and provided loomenz, still haven't replaced my torch from when I lost it at the mine meet last year. :S Nice architecture and an interesting little place. Would've been better if we hadn't been locked out. :p

    History


    Grade II isted in 1998, here's what British Listed Buildings had to say.

    Police station with magistrates court, later part library but then entirely police station. 1908-9 by J Dixon Butler in Free Tudor style. Built of red brick with stone dressings and mansard Westmoreland slate roof with end and central brick and stone capped chimney stacks. Two storeys; 7 windows, retaining leaded lights. Projecting central bay has curved stone gable with tall window of 9 mullions and transomes. Stone moulded architrave to flat-arched archway with elaborate keystone. On either side are two recessed bays with stone balustrading and modillion eaves cornice, double mullioned and transomed casements to first floor, single mullioned and transomed casements to ground floor and central stone doorcases with curved pediments with elongated console brackets. The right hand entrance was the Police Station, the left hand entrance the Magistrates Court. End bays have two storey five-light bays. Cell block accomodation comprises one detention room and one cell.

    It's now for sale after closure in 2014 and up for redevelopment, however this has so far been unsuccessful. (http://www.rightmove.co.uk/commercial-property-for-sale/property-43280606.html)

    I was seeing a girl from Watford about 6 months ago and she said that I should give this place a look, but I never went to Watford again :D Good to see it pop up though, nice inside.
