                The Law at War - History on Wheels

  Having constructed the "flat pack" Police Station originally for the 1940s Village at the Military Odyssey 2010, we rebuilt, enlarged and improved it in 2012.  

2016 has brought about many changes as we have now built a brand new Police Station onto a trailer so that the structure is permanently erected making it far more robust and easier to set up at events.  We tow the Police Station to various events including 1940s weekends, multi period living history events and Police events.

We hope to have re-created the feel of a wartime Police Station with our extensive collection of 1940s police and office artefacts, ephemera and memorabilia.  We have all sorts of items of interest within the station many of which are originals from the war years. Where we have been unable to source original items, for instance some of the paperwork and posters,  we have been careful to create or purchase reproductions that are accurate in their detail.  Many thanks to the Hampshire Constabulary History Society, Surrey Police and Avon & Somerset Police for their help and kind donations.  

In addition to the serious historical and educational aspects, we endeavour to provide amusement for children (aged 8 to 108!!) with carrying out fingerprinting and they can also try to guess "who is behind the cell door today?"  These activities have proved to be very popular as has our new holding cell which is never unoccupied for very long especially when there are spivs about!
