Remarks For location, see Tithe map Bollin Fee Plot 1427 occupied by Thomas Antrobus. The Georgian premises of Antrobus family business of glaziers, plumbers and painters was demolished in order to build the police station and caused public dismay. After the police moved out the building was converted to a pub in the 1990s. Appropriately, it was named "The Blue Lamp" - and had a standard police lamp above the front door. That, interesting, if not beautiful, building was demolished in 2002 and replaced by some of the most unsightly flats ever built.
