Section House rear of Banstead Police Station

This photograph shows the four residences forming the Section House at the rear of Banstead Police Station. The garden area would have bordered Chuck's Meadow and was probably used during WWII to grow produce. If you know otherwise, please add a comment below.
The date is estimated.

The photograph comes from a collection held by BHRG member Ted Bond.

Banstead Police Station was then under the control of the Metropolitan Police.
The four occupants of the section house were P.C.'s Partridge, Pratt, Dyson and Boughton.
Fred Partridge was one of the founders of Banstead Athletic F.C. His son Dennis played Cricket for Banstead CC and his sister Anne works with the Orpheus Trust. I see Dennis regularly.
Ted Pratt was the groundsman for Banstead CC and both his sons, Derek and Ronnie played Cricket for Banstead CC. and Surrey CCC. Ronnie was a distinguished opening bat for the County and Derek went on to play for Bedfordshire.

LNW, thank you. Does this apply to all comments and photos on this Group ?

Reply from LNW: Sorry, Christine, it does not. By all means include links to our site but taking more than the odd one or two will simply divert interested parties and comments away from our website. Additionally, a lot of the material on this site comes from contributors and they have not given their permission for their images or comments to be used by anyone else. I was able to allow you to use contents from this page because both contributor and commenter are members of the Group.
