Ilford Fire Station was constructed and opened on this site in 1986.

The station was built to replace the former Ilford Municipal Borough station from 1902 on nearby Ley Street.

Following the end of World War II and the dissolution of the National Fire Service in 1948, ownership of this station was passed to Essex County Fire Brigade.

With the formation of the Greater London Council in 1965, and the redrawing of boundaries, the station passed to London Fire Brigade ownership.
