Police Station Information

Braintree - Rayne Road was opened in and closed in

There is no known surviving photograph of Braintree's earliest police station.

The building's location along Rayne Road is clearly marked on the 1875 Ordnance Survey map, immediately next to Braintree Union Workhouse.

The site is now occupied by local authority-owned houses and flats, built in the 1960s. The road is named Peel Crescent, after Sir Francis John Peel, who served as Chief Constable of Essex Police between 1933 and 1962.


The building's current function is: Demolished
