History of the courthouse

The large courthouse was opened around 1910 to house the Internal Affairs Agency and the District Court. The building closed in 2009 when the justice system transferred the court services to a new building. Since then the building has been stripped back to bare brickwork as part of a renovation project. The building will be reopened as luxury flats and the central staircase and ornate ceiling will be retained and restored.

Our Visit
I had wanted to visit the courthouse for a while and got my chance while we were in the area with Proj3ct M4yh3m, Kriegaffe9 and Lowri. The staircase was the main feature, the rest of the building was very bland and stripped, but the staircase alone was well worth the visit.
