Where Is This In Beckenham

On our travels in never ceases to amaze us of some of the fantastic sites in Beckenham.

We came across this little plaque on the wall outside a well-known restaurant in Beckenham high street.

It reads:

1872-1884

This building housed Beckenham's first volunteer Fire Brigade, using a cart pulled by horses borrowed from nearby residents and traders whenever a fire broke out. The lion's head spout was used to refresh the horses with water piped from the Thames by the then Lambeth water company.

 

Its great to see these things, but do you know where it is?
