    After a shout on FB, visited here one morning with Atomic and another lurker.

    Cromer Magistrate's court was built in 1838-1839 and, with the former police station next door, was built in inter-war neo-Georgian style.

    In 1993 the courthouse was revamped at a cost of £110,000, to provide “two courts, an office, a waiting room with drinks dispenser and telephone and rooms for lawyers and witnessesâ€￾.

    March 31 2011 was the end of an era for criminal justice as the last of the region’s smaller magistrates courts – Cromer, Swaffham, Thetford and Wisbech – closed their doors for good. They were among 140 courts which closed nationwide.

    The Ministry of Justice said the courts had been in decline for years, only sitting two or three days each week. The operating costs of these four courts amounted to more than £350,000 annually and most were in need of expensive renovation.

    The site was purchased by Mcarthy and Stone a couple of years ago, who plan to demolish it and build 31 one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments for the over 60's- However local opposition is strong, and folk are trying to get the building listed.

    Anyway, Pics-

    Yes very nice SS. Reminds me of a similar place I did a while back on the East coast. There are loads of these police station/courtrooms about I'd say, most with the same story.

    There must be something wrong with the justice system, Crumlin Road was full of people that were "not guilty" if you read the graffitti!

    Does not seem very out of date at all, sounds like a cost cutting excuse to me.

    Very nice report all round :thumb
