Northern block and courtyard walls of Alice Billings House, Stratford E15 - Newham

A block of firemen's accommodation built for the West Ham Fire Brigade c1905-06; a rare example of the incorporation of a practice hose/drying tower separate from the fire station building. The building was used for offices from the 1980s. It has since been vacant and slowly deteriorating for many years. The Local Authority is exploring options for its re-use.
