Twickenham Police Station

From: A History of the County of Middlesex: Volume 3, Shepperton, Staines, Stanwell, Sunbury, Teddington, Heston and Isleworth, Twickenham, Cowley, Cranford, West Drayton, Greenford, Hanwell, Harefield and Harlington. Originally published by Victoria County History, London (1962):

“The parish twice refused to form a select vestry, but the Lighting and Watching Act, 1833, was adopted in the same year as it was passed. A watch had first been provided by subscription in 1822, and the lighting was continued after the Metropolitan Police had taken over the watch duties in 1840. A highway board was formed in 1849 after several previous rejections of the scheme, and a burial board, under the chairmanship of the vicar, in 1866. Lastly, a local board of health was formed in 1868.”

Sam Petherick posted on Richmond Nub News on 10.9.20:

“The nearest police station for Richmond residents is set to reopen next week.

Twickenham’s 24-hour front counter closed in January for refurbishment works.

A temporary station opened in Teddington at the same time. This will close when the Twickenham counter opens again on Tuesday, September 15.

Richmond Police announced the reopening date in a post on its Facebook page which you can read below.

The 24-hour front counter, which has been closed while refurbishment work was taking place, will re-open at 07:00hrs on Tuesday, September 15.

The front counter at Twickenham Police Station will re-open next week.

The temporary front counter, based at Teddington Police Station, will close at the same time.

The refurbishment work was carried out to create a more modern facility which will meet the demands of 21st century policing. It will also reduce the running costs of the estate.

The address of Twickenham Police Station is: 41 London Road, Twickenham, TW1 3SY.”
