Apparently the Bewick Centre in Newcastle also had a Gents atop it from when the building was known as the Coatsworth Cinema. This information was brought to you through the same person that informed me of the previous Newcastle cinema siren location.

Notice: The Sterling-Pharma site in Cramlington (near Newcastle) reportedly has "two main site alarms", not just the one that currently is mapped.

Hey frequent users of this thread, I'm the co-editor for the U.K. map and I noticed y'all have found some things that have yet to be added. Because of that I'd appreciate it if y'all sent me locations that need to be added, thanks in advance.

There was a Gents siren installed atop this station, however it was removed when it was rebuilt.

Several new locations to add. One is a repeat of a location previously mentioned that was missed off the last round of additions.


New/previously unreported
53.724900, -2.648928 - Klaxon ES1/2S, Evans Vanodine, Preston.

53.613318, -0.161644 - Klaxon ES1/3S, Tronox, Stallingborough. The A141s on site are already mapped.

53.331057, -2.754593 - Klaxon ES2S, Ineos, Runcorn.

53.255933, -2.540627 - Hormann ECN, Ecolab, Northwich.

54.599086, -1.584285 - Hormann ECN-600, Prefere Resins, Newton Aycliffe/Heighington.

52.384390, -2.239532 - Gent 2HP, Severn Valley Railway - Kidderminster station. It's screwed to a luggage trolley and is on display in the station concourse.

52.24177, -0.82832 - Klaxon GP8, Billing Aquadrome, Northampton.

52.24421, -0.82769 - Klaxon GP8, Billing Aquadrome, Northampton.

52.24168, -0.81681 - Klaxon GP8, Billing Aquadrome, Northampton.
All three Billing Aquadrome sirens (possible there are more but this is tbc) have all the hallmarks of being the former Northampton flood sirens. I've labelled them as Klaxon but they may be Secomak.


Repeats of previously reported, but not-yet-added, sirens
53.606391, -0.158066 - Klaxon GP8, BOC, Stallingborough.


And some updates...
Sheffield Memorial Hall location is not a siren, and can be removed. This aerial photograph reveals that what looks like a blue CC from satellite view is actually no more than some electrical cabinets: https://www.alamy.com/aerial-view-of-sh ... 32283.html

The Flogas siren in east Birmingham, currently labelled as a Castle Castings, is a Secomak GP8.

The caption for the Wolverton Works tri-tone needs editing - the siren only has two rotors, and produces a single tone. The outer 12-port and 15-port rotors have been removed. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJ7Nql0fO44)

The new Broadmoor siren (an ES1/2S) is located at 51.370549, -0.775735. Drove down Joshua Jebb Way in September and saw it for myself. Couldn't get a photo as it's a no-stopping road and I was the one driving!

No, the Klaxon SS6 is not a Sentry 95...

Hello,

Just found two small sirens at the Port William Inshore Rescue building, I think that they are Gents but I may be wrong. Only one is in use.

Hello,

At one point, Haydon Bridge fire station had a siren, as stated on page 12 of this article: http://www.haydon-news.co.uk/issues/2016nov.pdf

The siren was last sounded in 1968, and the fire station was decommissioned in 2016, being demolished 2 years later in 2018.

I have sent an email regarding the siren, as-of now the make and model are unknown to me, neither the exact spot of installation. Hopefully the response will shed more light on the situation.

Edit: upon re-reading the article, I realised that a building on John Martin Street was being used by the Fire Brigade at the time of the siren being purchased, so the siren may have been situated somewhere there.
