News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Sandgate Old Fire Station

51 Sandgate High Street, Sandgate, Kent.
The Sandgate Volunteer Fire Brigade was formed in 1856 with the fire station opening in 1884.
The building was built as a dual fire station and reading room. The first floor reading room is pine panelled with an oriel window overlooking the High Street. The hipped roof is tiled and has a square bell cote topped by a fishscale tiled spire.
The building is grade two listed and since 1976 has been owned by the Sandgate Heritage Trust.
