Reddish Old Police Station


Built of red brick, the old Police Station on Gorton Road, Reddish has been converted into apartments.


Above the doorway, between the words POLICE and STATION, is a coat of arms relating to the Lancashire Constabulary.

The building presumably pre-dates 1901 when Reddish transferred from Lancashire to Cheshire.

Above the coat of arms is a hole which would originally have held the traditional police blue lamp.

  3. I think I prefer the look of it as a police station rather than those apartments.

  6. We have a lot of old red brick buildings in our part of the country but not many have been made into apartments.
