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)

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!

Bishopsgate orginally 1861 - levelled rebuilt in current form in 1930’s

Tring Police Station 1910

 

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.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
