LCC-MFB Headquarters station at Southwark SE1

The Metropolitan Fire Brigade was created in 1866, having replaced the former London Fire Engine Establishment brigade. It moved from its former Watling Street HQ to the Southwark site due to the vast expansion of the Brigade. Its first Chief Officer, Captain Eyre Massey Shaw, had this complex built as the new headquarters and No 1 fire station. It remained the Brigade Headquarters until 1937 when a new headquarters was opened in Lambeth. The gothic style frontage was demolished in the late 1960s by the Greater London Council but the fire station (now a museum) remains standing today
