This very imposing building, which was designed by William Sugden and William Larner Sugden, was purpose-built in 1891 as a police station, superintendants house and stables. It has a very strong Scottish Barional Influence to its design.
It was used as a police station up until the late 1980’s when it was replaced by a modern Police station built a few streets away. It has now been converted into several apartments.
I remember visiting here as a child in the early 1980’s on a school field trip, we were given a guided tour of the station including the old cells.
