Notes

Designed by H. F. T. Cooper, Euston was constructed between 1901 and 1902, replacing the Metropolitan Fire Brigade station at 171–175 Great Portland Street.

The station officially opened on 27 November 1902 and was the headquarters of the North Division. Following the end of the First World War, a temporary 3-bay extension was added to the building and still survives today.

Euston was bestowed with Grade II Listed Building status on 14th May 1974 with the reasons given ‘It is widely regarded as the masterpiece of a remarkable group of fire stations built by the LCC between 1896-1914, and stands at the summit of achievement of LCC civic architecture of this rich and prolific period.’
