Notes

Wimbledon Fire Station was constructed and opened in 1989.

This station was built to replace the former Wimbledon Municipal Borough station dating from 1904, located on Queens Road.

The former station was vacated due to the construction of the Centre Court shopping centre. However, it survives today as retail premises as it was granted Grade II Listed Building status on 14th January 1986.
