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)

David Dowle added (November 2017): "... If the plaque referred to is by the front door then it's the old mark of the Cheltenham Brewery and its West Country Ales. I believe it became the Cheltenham and Hereford Brewery".

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

Above: the same area as depicted on Google Street View in April 2014. Thankfully, the milestone is still present.
