Former Fire Station and police station, former home of the coroners office / court (I believe the mortuary slab may still be there). Post Code M1 3GW Closed as a fire station in 1986, this beautiful building has been derelict for many years as the owner and the Council argue over development - attempts to Compulsorily Purchase the building were foiled. Lovely external statuary. Built 1901-6, by Woodhouse, Willoughby and Langham. Red brick with liberal dressings of yellow terracotta A Grade 2* listed building - English Heritage Building ID: 388288 - which is not being maintained.
