Blackwall Fire Station was the home station of Blue Watch in London's Burning. It was located in Blackwall, in the London borough of Tower Hamlets. The station seen up to series 12 is a real working fire station, Dockhead, located in Bermondsey on Wolsley Street, approximately half a mile from Tower Bridge. In series 13 Blackwall moved to new premises nearby (the real life Leyton Fire Station).
The Blackwall seen up until Series 12 was a much older station, and featured a recreational room (though rarely seen after Series 1), mess room, games room, watch room, BA room and appliance bay. The mess room and kitchen was where the watches usually were and where they ate. The mess room was refurbished inbetween Series 5 and Series 6. There were various offices and a dormitory as well as seperate ones for more senior officers. The station officers room was where the various station officers were located. It was noted by Scase that Tate's office was much brighter and comfortable than his station commanders office. Tate told him that this was because the rank ADO was created after they had made the station officer rank and thus had to find space in existing stations.
In Series 13, George and Adam drove past the old Blackwall which was now boarded up and it was revealed that there were plans to turn it into a posh restaurant with flats on top. George, who didn't really like the idea, noted that Sicknote would be turning in his grave by now.
