Lambeth: London Fire Brigade Headquarters, Albert Embankment, SE1
In 2007 the London Fire Brigade sold this Headquarters building to housing developers with a view to moving the HQ to a site in Union Street SE1, close to their Training Centre, in 2008. This eight storey building was purpose built for the London Fire Brigade between 1934 and 1937, at a cost of about 390,000 including the purchase of the land, and was officially opened on 21 July 1937 by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. It has seven turn-outs onto Albert Embankment, protected by the traffic lights.
