003/100 – Golders Green Police Station

Golders Green Police Station (former), 1069 Finchley Road

I don’t know much about Golders Green Poolice Station. I see that it was sold off last year for £5 million. But it’s a striking building on a section of Finchley Road leading towards Temple Fortune mostly dominated by retail outlets.

I’ve started seeing this type of police station in other areas, too. But even if you didn’t look at this and think, ‘ah, that’s a police station,’ then the lanterns near the steps (blacked out here) are a major giveaway.

The mansard roof, book-endlike chimneys, and alternately-capped gable dormers are all nice features.
