History of Mansfield Fire Museum

The Mansfield Fire Preservation Society was formed in November 1983 by a group of Fire Station Personnel, civlians and other interested parties who were keen to maintain, increase and exhibit a collection of Fire Service Memorabillia


During 1995 the building was completely refurbished and decorated as it was to become the temporary fire station for approximately 18 months whilst the original fire station was being demolished and the new one constructed on the same site.When the new Fire Station was completed, this building then became a Museum


When the old station was demolished two sets of the old appliance bay doors were saved and fitted to the front of the Museum to give the appearance of a two bay Fire Station


The Museum is under constant development and new exhibits are added regulary
