Buntingford Volunteer Fire Brigade was formed in 1896 and their frist engine was a Merryweather,
bought for £80.00 this was normally drawn by two horses and needed 30 men to operate the pumps.
The original "fire-house" was behind the Angle Inn in the High Street, but the building you see here was built in 1931 by Buntingford Rural District Council and was, therefore, "the new fire station" some 65 years ago.
When ever fire broke out, a rocket would be sent up and local volunteer firemen would rush from wherever they were to man their "engine"
