Walmer Police Station

I had to pop into the Walmer Police Station to pick up a document that I had been waiting for for more than three years already. At least I have it now.  The police station covers a huge area that includes the suburbs of Walmer and Charlo.  I couldn't find a lot of history on the police station itself other than the fact that Stephen Bantu Biko was detained here for 20 days in 1977 under Section 6 of the Terrorism Act before being taken elsewhere for interrogation.


  1. Glad you got your papers and didn't have to wait 20 years. Ah, the slow wheels of progress.

  2. Wow that is looking good. Lived across the road for many years.. is the call box still there??
