TQ2681 : Police Station, Harrow Road

taken 7 years ago, near to Marylebone, Westminster, Great Britain

Police Station, Harrow Road
Police Station, Harrow Road
Not just any old police station, this is Paddington Green, the high-security police station in which terrorist suspects are confined in special underground cells. I half expected to be dragged into one of them for having the temerity to photograph the building (I wasn't). One of a cluster of four towers at the east end of Westway, it was built in 1966-71 by J. Innes-Elliot of the Metropolitan Police. There are reliefs at the bottom of the tower, the outline of which is disrupted by the projections which accommodate balconies (presumably for the section house) on the south and north sides.
