    Been sitting on this a little while now, mainly cos others have already done impressive photos from here.
    This was right up my street, really is about the decay and the atmosphere linked to what once went on here.
    Thanks to 'slayaaaa' for the heads-up.​


    HISTORY (Copied from Slayaaaa and The_Raw reports)

    West ham court house, also know as West ham Magistrates' or West ham Police and Coroner's court was a Yellow brick Victorian era Italianate Court house built in 1884 with arched windows, narrow symmetrical facade and a long thin plan, which was repeated in mirror image for the coroners court and other buildings. Each entrance had a coat of arms above it. Designed by the architect Lewis Angell, who at the time was a Borough Engineer from 1867 to 1899, It was later extended by a different architect, John Morley in 1901 which included a new frontage.

    The courts officially opened in 1885.

    West ham obtained it's own Stipendiary Magistrate under the provisions of the Stipendiary Magistrates Act 1863, Before the court house was built. This Stipendiary ceased from 1954 (Due to the joint appointment with East Ham).
