    Someone has a sense of humour - stenciling the crimestoppers number on the cell wall. :)

    Some of my photos from the last few days.


    View of the Magistrates Court and the Police Station from the riverside. From left to right - The brick building to the left is the Court; linked to what appears to be a recreation block (contained a kitchen, bar and a room where ID parades were carried out). There is then another linking corridor (see below) which links to the entrance hall (also see below) and the main admin block. The concrete structure behind the bushes on the right is the garages.

    The court is to be retained but the Police station will be demolished soon to make way for a new glass and curtain walling multi-storey building (which in 20 years time we'll all probably be complaining how crap it looks next to that nice art-deco building.....)


    The entrance hall. This was full glazed on 3 sides and lit by natural light. It's now all boarded up as when the Police left it appears people took revenge; there's lots of smashed glass now (who thought a glass Police station was a good idea!!).


    The linking corridor which runs all the way to the Court, (well boarded up now - not a way in!), and more broken glass.


    Moveable screens with mirrored glass which were used for ID parades. Disappointed there wasn't a proper line up room - wanted to do some Usual Suspects style lineup shots


    The garage.


    A basement roof light and eerie green light cause by sunlight shining through the undergrowth outside.

    I'll add my pictures of the Magistrates Court soon.

    Wow, what a funky, funky staircase in the Magistrates Court. I like the police station too but love the court especially. Can't get over those stairs...and the cute skylight...and the basement skylight. Fab pics guys. :)
