Community Fire and Rescue Stations

Aintree Community Fire Station is on Longmoor Lane. 

The station covers the areas of Aintree, Old Roan, 

Walton and Fazakerley. Within the station area there 

are some extensive and unique risks including Aintree 

University Hospital, which is a large teaching hospital 

providing Accident and Emergency services and a 

wide range of acute and non-acute specialities. It is 

also the Major Trauma Centre for the Mersey and 

Cheshire region. The Walton Centre is located

on the same site along with Mersey Care NHS Trust and 

the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre Liverpool. Aintree also 

has two prisons - Walton Prison (HMP Liverpool) and 

Altcourse Prison.

Walton prison was built in 1855 and covers an area 

of 22 acres and is the more traditional type of prison.

Altcourse was the first designed, constructed, 

managed and financed private prison in the UK.

Aintree Racecourse and Aintree International 

Equestrian Centre are within Aintree's station 

boundaries. The course is the home of the Grand 

National steeplechase, one of the most famous races 

in the world. There is also a large retail park and 

industrial estate nearby.
