The old fire station

By Alice Cave

Beeston has a new fire station at Hassocks Lane, which, when it opened in February 2009 took over the business from earlier Beeston and Dunkirk stations, both of which then closed.  The former buildings of Beeston Fire Station on Station Road remain, currently (2011) boarded up, after having been used as temporary development headquarters for work on Beeston High Road and the Tesco site. 

There are some interesting photographs and information about the beginnings of the fire service in Beeston on the site Exploring Beeston's History.
