This small building was once the fire station for Redcar.Old Fire Station, Redcar

I don’t know exact dates it operated but its marked on an 1894 map.

One fire engine that may have been stationed here was a 1937 Leyland Cub that currently resides in a museum in the Nethelands.

  1. I wonder how the fire engine ended up there? It would be nice if it could be seen at a local museum, perhaps the Kirkleatham Hall museum…..

  2. this has now gone missing has the muesum has closed down in holland . there was talk OXFORD DIECAST was doing a model of it

  3. if im not mistaken this was never used as a fire station as it was built at the same time they built the one in preson street that was where big bertha was stationed. if anyone has any update on this please post them

  4. The building was the engine shed for Coatham, i think it housed a steamer at one time, I am on the hunt for the missing Redcar Leyland, hopefully she is still in Holland..

  5. The missing 1937 Redcar Leyland Fire engine has been found, she is still in Holland in a well known auto museum’s storage facility.

  6. The Kirkleatham Fire Station was used before 1890 and was run by volunteer firemen. Late in Peirson St it was run by Capt. Arthur Hall who was supported by volunteers but even he had to get the key from the Police Station before using any of the equipment… Later both the Chief Fire Officer and the Police Inspector’s duties were carried out by the same person.

  7. Hi my late father restored this fire engine years ago he wanted it to stay in England but she was sold at Beaulieu motor museum to go in a museum roughly roughly in 1977 to 78 i have some photos plus loads of great memories it took him roughly 6 years to restore her
