• Description

    Photos by 16/3/2016 by ALAN FRYER. "The building of 1896, on Bridge Street, by county architect John Cresswell, has come to the end of its life as a police station. Described by Pevsner, in his monumental "Buildings of England" series in the 1950s, as probably the best building in Blyth....I was kindly allowed access to the Police Station back in March 2015 and took these images. The vast majority of the station was disused, the Police mostly being operational from a single room which was once the Magistrates Court. Many thanks to the Blyth Neighbourhood Police team for allowing me access...."
