Manchester Old Fire Station (bw sepia)

The Old Fire Station was built in 1906 and served as central Manchester's main fire station until it was vacated by the Greater Manchester Fire Service in 1982. Since then it has stood empty, delapidated and gradually deteriorating. Plans for re-use have not gone ahead. Its future remains uncertain.

The Old Fire Station is one of Manchester's most magnificent buildings. It is very sad that despite all the regeneration going on all around, the building remains empty and mostly unused.
