Oldest nick you’ve ever served at?

Recommended Posts

Thought it might be interesting to see what the oldest nick forum members have ever been based at? 

Wonder what the oldest nick in the country is? 

Here's my humble contribution, 1891. Inside it's been completely refurnished, but the exercise yard still remains intake.

My Oldest Station was Westminster Road, Liverpool. Built 1885. Initially "E" Division Liverpool City Police, "B" Division Liverpool and Bootle Constabulary and later "A" Dvision Merseyside. Closed 1984 (Pity it didn't make a century)

Was surprised to learn (according to Google, anyway) that, the oldest operational police station in London is in Wapping, which opened in 1908!

In all seriousness, I think my humble contribution, might in fact be a real contender for the oldest still operational nick in the UK?

Unless anyone can out trump me?

I was here a couple of years Charing Cross, Agar Street WC2. Built as the Charing Cross Hospital in 1831. Moved to its new site in Hammersmith in the 70's and this site became derelict. Re opened as a nick in the early 90's. A bit of cheat but still!

Another contender is Conwy Station, which was built in the 1860’s and is documented on Black’s guide to North Wales dated 1869. It’s still an operational station today!

Not as easy as it first seems is it.

With so many of these old nicks have closed down now, the really old still operational ones are few and far between.
