LCC-MFB Kennington fire station, London SE11

Built by the Metropolitan Board of Works (the forerunner of the London County Council) and opened in 1870, Kennington fire station was located in Refrew Road, Lower Kennington, Lambeth where it still stands. In 1918 two of its firemen were killed in a building blaze on the Albert Embankment. The adoption of motorised fire engines by the LFB led to a reduction in the number of stations required, and 15 were closed down in 1920, Kennington being one of them.
