Visited with Sal.

I was in the area booking my car in for a service at the garage next door so thought it remiss not to take a quick peek. Closed at the end of 2009 when a modern community fire station was opened on the former site of Donkins foundry, this 60s monstrosity is begging to be demolished. A seven engine bayed affair it has the usual trappings including bar and dining room, locker room, offices, changing area etc...best of all though it has a firemans pole! Health and safety regulations these days mean firefighters are not permitted to use poles any more, stairs are far safer :rolleyes: Didn't stop me though, was fun, for a half hour or so.

Cobland, otherwise known as Derbyshire lol.
Twas a good explore. Been past this place loads of times and always said we'd stop if we had chance, but kept putting it off. Today was the day. :)

Here's a few of my offerings. :eek:

Main room where the engines lived.

And lastly from me, the right hand door to this building used to house the breathing apparatus. :) Unfortunately we couldn't see inside there. :(
