LCC-MFB Cherry Garden river fire station, SE London Featured 1 Nov 2011 Print

LCC-MFB Cherry Garden river fire station, SE London

Built by the London County Council, Cherry Garden river fire station was located at Cherry Garden Street in Bermondsey. It was one of four Metropolitan Fire Brigade river stations and, from 1904, the London Fire Brigade. Fireboat Delta was stationed here, followed later by its replacement Gamma III. Although no land fire engines were stationed at Cherry Garden, as can be seen the station maintained a wheeled escape and a hose cart, together with two hook ladders. It remained open until 1948 when, after the fire service was denationalised, London's river service came under review. Cherry Garden was deemed unnecessary and was closed

LCC-LFB Vauxhall fire station, Lambeth SE1 Featured 1 Nov 2011 Print

LCC-LFB Vauxhall fire station, Lambeth SE1

Vauxhall fire station was built by the London County Council in the last year of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade, before the name was changed to the London Fire Brigade. The station was located on the Albert Embankment. It was considered by some to be an unlucky fire station. Shortly after opening, a fireman, his wife and child were gassed to death in their flat above the station. In 1918 four firemen from Vauxhall were killed at a fire on the Albert Embankment which took seven firemen's lives. The station was closed in 1937 with the opening of the new Fire Brigade headquarters, also built on the Albert Embankment. The station was demolished in the early 1970s
