Coleford Police Station.

A photo of the old police station at Coleford

Today's viewAbove the police station front door was the courtroom with it's 3 windows facing us. The cover on the top-right of the building protected the siren. The building with no windows to the left of the police station was the Conservative Club. Members had a 'windfall' when the building was sold as it was not replaced. Behind the police station are steps up to the public entrance and the building behind the steps housed the cells - the barred windows can be seen. The building far right with the white gables and chimney was Dr Battle's, The Marshes.(notes courtesy of Royston Pritchard)

Note the plaque on the wall of the King's Head - this resembles a fire (insurance) plaque.
