I was going to title this post as Headquarters No. 6 Area Traffic Division Seabrook, but I thought it may be a bit of a let down when you looked :) But thats what it is, built in 1908 as station and garages for Headquarters No. 6 Area Traffic Division under Chief Inspector David Godden.

Over the years after closing in the 60's as a police station it appears to have been a youth centre and canoe centre amongst other things.

I and others had been trying this place for years but never getting there, unexpectedly a way was found so myself and a friend had a look. This is what we found, these are his pictures. I am having a backup misplacement issue lol I will find mine :)

Unfortunately its now a hole in the ground and the site is being built on.

No Nelly, apparently it never had cells as it was mainly the old equivalent of a police garage for the area. Any crim's were taken to folkestone.

Thanks, as I said in the words, The pictures are my mates, mine have been misplaced on a HD somewhere lol. The outside ones are pretty ropey, not sure what he did there. But it was an on the spur thing, so no torches all pics were taken with flash and the iso was to high in the night ones by the looks of it.
