The old and new fire stations which were built to serve the area.

The old one was demolished in 1974 when the new station was built, JCT 600 car showroom is now on the site.

I well remember the fire siren from the old fire station. No doubt it had seen service in the 2nd world war, but it was tested at noon weekly, and when it went off for real all the firemen grabbed their bicycles and set off in a tearing hurry. Two of them lived opposite us in Apperley Lane, Mr Lofthouse was one and the other whose name escapes me lived next door to him. On Nov 5th the Lime Grove bonfire was carefully watched over by these two firemen!
