Wendover Police Station
This is not the first time that Wendover Police Station has closed. The original lock up in Wendover can still be found inside Wendover Clock Tower. This was succeeded by a building on Aylesbury Road which is now a domestic dwelling. It was given a brand new building at the junction of Lionel Avenue with Aylesbury Road.
On 11 April 2016 a for sale sign went up and by Friday 1 July a Neighbourhood Engagement point opened in Wendover Community Library, Tuesdays Thursdays and Fridays, 10am – 12 noon.

Now the deconstruction work is well underway. Work men have completely taken the roof off the old station. As well as the station, the building next door, a police house, is being taken down and is off to a slow start but isn’t far behind the station. The developers have said it will soon become a building with nine flats, which will complement the area and will look like 2 houses to fit its surroundings around this area.
Almost one third of Thames Valley police stations have to be replaced or to be completely gone around the region, since 2014, as a way to save about £40m for the police services. Many police stations have been closed across the region and many are being deconstructed and replaced, such as the Wendover Police station. Thames Valley in Wendover has asked people to contact Aylesbury if they are in need of police services while the station is under work, using 101.
