Winchester Combined Court Centre

Winchester Combined Court Centre [1] is a law court in Winchester, Hampshire, England built in the mid 1970s.[2] It is owned and operated by HM Courts & Tribunals Service. The most high-profile cases to be heard there are that of Rose West murder trial in 1995,[3] and the 6 members of the Provisional IRA, who were convicted amongst heavy security in the Great Hall of causing 2 bomb explosions injuring 216 people in central London that March.[4]

The centre up-until the mid 1990s also contained magistrate courts, and these temporally returned in 2011 whilst the court building in Basingstoke were undergoing a refurbishment.[5]
