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

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-MFB Kennington fire station, London SE11 Featured 1 Nov 2011 Image

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
