Built 1910. A prior lockup was built in 1872 for the one-constable police post. After 38 years of use, a replacement two-cell block was required. The 1872 cell doors were reused in the 1910 building. A larger police station was built but it was demolished in 1976 for an expansion of Bradfield Highway route to the Story Bridge. Only the lockup remains to mark an important C19th police post.
