    Default Assize Courts, Devizes.


    Okay, so myself, Bishop and -=Norman=- went to visit this location today, it's an interesting one which was originally built in the mid 1800s as a both a magistrate and assize courthouse, it was in active use as a police station until 1969 and a court until 1974. I'm not sure what it was used for after then if anything, one thing for sure is that it's totally trashed inside.
