At the junction of Mount Pleasant with Bow Street, this was built circa 1840, is Grade II listed and is unique in that it is the only police station in the country that is surrounded by a moat, about ten feet deep and six feet wide.

It was closed on 14 December 2010, having been declared, in politician speak of the times, "not fit for purpose", and sold on 22 July 2011 for 176,000.
