The Old Fire Station, Sandgate High Street.

” Raising its fish scale spire above the rooftops it forms the centrepiece of the High Street, though the bell no longer clangs in the bell-cote, the bright red double doors proclaim it to be an old fire station.  A beautifully pine-panelled room with an oriel window overlooking the High Street occupies the floor above.  This building more than a century old is thought to be unique”
