The Station House and John Brough black plaque in Grange-over-Sands

The Station House
John Brough's farmhouse preceded all other buildings on this site. Residents of Grange came here in Victorian times to buy their milk and other dairy products. By 1866 under an act of Parliament during the great Queen's reign, this structure was converted into a "Station House with strongroom for the temporary confinement of persons taken into custody by the Constables". Deeds relevant to these premises show that it was in fact Grange's first Police Station. Remnants of old cells remain behind the house. An inscription date "ISI 1684" can be seen above, but is of dubious origin
