ST5873 : Former police station, Bridwell Street, Bristol

taken 5 years ago, near to Bristol, Great Britain

Former police station, Bridwell Street, Bristol
Former police station, Bridwell Street, Bristol
By Ivor Jones and Percy Thomas, 1928. Pevsner draws one's attention to the "dramatic" entrance, with "massive blocked piers and exaggerated voussoirs beneath an open pediment." Grade II listed.
Cutbacks have resulted in many such buildings, including the adjacent magistrates' court (ST5873 : Former police courts, Bridewell Street, Bristol), being closed and the state struggling to find viable new uses. I don't know if one has been found for this building.
