The Old Fire Station, Alexander Road, Acocks Green

This is the Fire Station on Alexander Road in Acocks Green. Or rather the former fire station since it hasn't been one since 1993.

 

Another building I may have spotted from the bus, or more likely having a look up on Google Street Maps.

 

I think that The Old Fire Station is occupied by JFM Design Limited / JFM Associates.

 

It is round the corner from the Police Station, or rather it was built where the garden of it was.

 

It is locally listed as Grade B.

 

This was built c. 1921, replacing gardens at the back of the police station. It closed in 1993, when a new fire station at Speedwell Road opened. Red brick and buff terracotta; tile roof. Single-storey; two bays, the right hand bay set forward and containing a pair of tall, half-glazed doors set in a flat arched opening with bold keystone, all under a brick and terracotta striped gable bearing the words "Fire Station" in raised terracotta letters. The left hand bay is lower and contains a doorway and single window.
