Police set out to impress

Old Leek police station

This grand old entrance is, believe it or not, just the doorway to the old Leek town police station.  However, the huge text and the Latin inscription demonstrates the intention at the time (1891) - to impress (subdue?) the local population.

I also notice the Stafford Knots above the columns...
