Belsize Fire Station was officially opened in 1915. Designed by Charles Canning Windmill an architect of the London County Council Architects Department, it was awarded its Grade II* listing by English Heritage over 40 years ago, being described as "one of the most distinctive and original of a remarkable series of fire stations built". Seen as a clever interpretation of an Arts and Craft-style house, Belsize Park Fire Station is set on a generous plot and was sensitively designed to blend in to its residential location, noted for the many spacious Victorian and Edwardian homes lining the surrounding leafy avenues. The elevation to Eton Avenue resembles a row of terraced cottages with its tiled roof and tall chimneys while the view from Lancaster Grove is of the stone clad appliance bay frontage with its huge glazed doors, steeply pitched roof and tall hipped dormer windows. Belsize Fire Station completed almost 100 years of service before being decommissioned in 2014. Fire crews from the station worked tirelessly during the two world wars, keeping the service running throughout the London Blitz from 1940 to 1941. Crews from the fire station also attended the 1987 King's Cross fire and the 7/7 bombings in 2005.
