    I have visited this place a few times in the past but never took enough photos to warrant a report. Back when apart from bit of graffiti around the place, it was hardly touched. Unfortunately now, demolition has begun to convert it into student flats. A proposal beforehand to turn it into a hotel was shelved. I believe the these courts closed in 2006/2007.

    I always remember in the basement there was a section further down that was inaccessible due to it being completely flooded. It seems they have started the process of draining this (probably around 8 foot deep in total I reckon). To get to it quicker they knocked a hole through a wall which we were very please to find. There was lots of asbestos and sharp cut up metal sections but this not deter us when we could see a doorway on the other side of the room which was deep in water, metal sheeting and asbestos piping. We were glad to make it to the other side. Quite interesting in there, especially considering it's probably not been accessed for a few years.

    History. Shamelessly stolen:
    How some of the courts used to look like:

    Down in the previously inaccessible basement area:

    And a room with a stack of old books:

    Thanks for looking. May get some more photos of the inside of it as it stands now. But it's a little upsetting.​
