Building where 2nd Police Station was located

No 54,   including the archway and above, are recorded in Griffith Valuation in 1859   as a police barracks, offices, yard and small back garden. This was probably   the second police barracks in Loughgall. Because it was a barracks, William   H. Walker, the lease-holder, had only to pay half the rental. Abraham Walker,   probably William’s father and a merchant, is recorded as occupying this and   all the adjacent properties and yard to the right in the 1837/38 Townland   Valuation. When the police barracks moved across the road in 1871, the   tenants over the years included a minister’s widow and two young children, a   scripture reader and some labourers. When Jack Bell, Harry Bell’s son,   retired from his hardware business next door he moved into this house. The   shop has changed hands many times, but the Bell family still occupy the   house.
