Location: Rochester Police Station

Date Visited: March 2008

Present Status: Derelict and Decaying

Future Plans: Not certain, but probably demolition and housing

Rochester police statiion was origenally built sometime in the 50's judging by it's style, and is surprisingly small inside for a major town police station, you can see how they really crammed people into the offices by the number of phone points and desks in each area. It was vacated in 2005/6 when a brand new state of the art police station was opened at Brompton, Gillingham covering the whole of the Medway towns from a single location.

The buildings are in a bit of a state inside due to its location offering the opportunities to local youths to do their best at trashing the building. There was a lot of furnature and other items in the building when we visited, I understand these have now been removed, and the building is more-or-less a shell. The view from the top of the building is brillient, right across medway in all directions. It's pretty much the highest structure in the area.

I expect it will be demolished and housing built on the land, as it's an ideal location for development.

On with some photos.

cant beleive ive never done this place great pics maniac
Probably not worth it now, as apparently it's just a shell inside and is very trashed compared to what it was when I visited.

I did a lot of places in the Medway area when I used to work in Gillingham.
