After a fair few recces, sussed acces and hey presto - the infamous Crumlin Road Courthouse - which was a site of hatred for all sides during 'The Troubles'

It is connected to the notorious Crumlin Road Jail 'The Crum' over the road by a tunnel, but it is locked tight as they are trying to develope the prison into a tourist attraction !

Re: Crumlin Road Court House, Belfast - REPORT May 08

I have books which tell of the people there, the nasty things they did to get there, and the grim things that went on inside. The 'other place' you reported on a while back gets a lot of the press, but it was only used for internment for years before it became HMP. All the crims went here, it's slap bang in the middle of a loyalist area, but squeezed in between two big nationalist areas north and south. Very dodgy in its day, I'm sure BillAnd will tell if its any better now.

Sorry for all the additionals to the excellent explore, but NI history is something I'm interested in.
Just to wet your appetite a little more then Foz

this is the corner of the jail across the road - the Mater Hospital is next door, and they have labs in the foreground (lots of cctv)
