The History of The Old Fire Station
The Old Fire Station is a small red brick building built in 1923 off the Market Place in the centre of Heanor.
Following use as a workshop and recording studio for the former adjacent South East Derbyshire College, the building was purchased by Heanor & Loscoe Town Council to be converted to an Arts and Heritage Centre.
However, presently The Old Fire Station is used as a Blood Clinic.
John Cunningham Architects carried out a Feasibility Study, which considered the building’s history and options for its reuse and lead to the project to convert the building with the addition of a new entrance.
Internally, a mezzanine floor was introduced and original roof trusses revealed, whilst the original opening for the fire engine was also reinstated externally.
