Sandgate Old Fire Station
« Reply #1 on: June 16, 2018, 22:34:37 »
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.
