GV II

Police Station. 1904 by John Dixon Butler for the Metropolitan Police. Red brick with Portland stone dressings and bands, slate roof. Symmetrical rectangular plan of three storeys to front, lower two-storey range to rear is more picturesque in its scale and arrangement. Tall brick stacks, those in the centre of the main front with stone bands. This facade broken up into three principal bays under separate pediments with heavy dentilled cornice and plain banding treated as frieze, the central one taller, with two paired lights under and offset door in stone moulded surround; those flanking projecting under round-arched pediments and with ground-floor bay windows in stone surrounds under balustrade. These windows have casements with small-paned top-lights as popularised by Norman Shaw, the others are sashes. To side, wall with stone-topped piers and stone bands forms part of the composition. The building contributes to a particularly important group of listed public buildings at the historic focus of East Ham.
