Eastleigh Police Station

We waited some time for Hampshire Constabulary to close another station, this one had been on the list for some time but finally it closed. Meaning we could get to do another local police station.

Sadly they had started stripping it. So upstairs was pretty empty. It was a shame but we were in and we had been waiting for this one. This must have been the hottest and most lit up explore I had done with the heating blasting away and the lights on.

Originally built in 1924 and closed in March 2019, this police station has been a bastion of the war against crime for nearly a Century. Covering a very large area including Eastleigh, Chandlers Ford, Romsey and the surrounding villages. As more rural stations closed one after the other, finally the area became too big and a larger modern station was built locally.

Having grown up in the area I have managed to stay here at her Majesty’s expense on more than one occasion, so it was nice to have a more relaxed visit. I bet some of you reading will recognise these cells some of us called home on a Friday night.
