SO8505 : Old police station, Stroud

taken 11 years ago, near to Stroud, Gloucestershire, Great Britain

Old police station, Stroud
Old police station, Stroud
This former police station is now a private members' club; the force now occupies an ugly concrete building on a hill overlooking the town (SO8505 : Stroud police station). It stands on one of Stroud's many roundabouts. The route from left to right across the picture was formerly an important through route, as the road from Gloucester entered the town centre before continuing on to Cirencester, but traffic is now directed along the relatively new street of Merrywalks in the foreground. The photo was taken from the (not particularly useful) footbridge over Merrywalks, at 4.30 pm on a Sunday; the roundabout is rather busier at this time on a weekday!
