The Watch House
In the 1830's the newly formed Hampstead Police Force set out on its patrol & nightly watch from the house.
Erected by the Hampstead Plaque Fund

British History Online points out that this plaque incorrectly names the Hampstead Police Force since, by the time they moved into this building the Hampstead police had already became part of S division of the Metropolitan police force.
