    Default Magistrates Court


    Ashless had a prior engagement with the culvert, so had to head of. The_Revolution and I decided to investigate the Magistrate Court. Many thanks to ThenewMendoza for the tip off on the access here. This *may* have active security, I'll not say more than that in an open post. PM if you want info.

    The Magistrates Court was built in the 1930s as part of Derby's 'Central Improvement Scheme' - perhaps one of the earliest examples of regeneration. The riverbank was full of dirty industrial buildings, these were all demolished, the road system redesigned with a new bridge over the River Derwent (Exeter Bridge) a new town hall (the council house) police station, bus station, riverside gardens, a block of flats (Exeter House) and riverside market. It was all designed by Charles Aslin whom was the 'borough architect' at the time (Queen Street Leisure Centre is another of his buildings).

    I think I'm more of a candidate for a padded cell. Especially as I seem to still follow you every time you say "we could climb up there"

    Cheers thompski; good bit of research there. Have you seen any of the books on Derby by Winters Photography (based on Midland Road)? Lots of interesting stuff about Derby; including photos of that area (there used to be a power station where the newer Police station is!)
