Nottingham Magistrates' Court
Until 1996, Nottingham Magistrates were housed in two separate buildings, the Guildhall and the Shire Hall.
In 1996, all magistrates were moved to the new Nottingham Magistrates' Court building, and the old buildings were closed.
The building was designed by the Nottingham County Council Architect's Department with William Saunders Partnership and Cullen, Carter and Hill. It sits on the site of Nottingham Carrington Street railway station and the gateposts still frame the pathway from Carrington Street to the court.
There are 18 court rooms in the main block, with 6 court rooms in the Youth and Family block.
The complex of buildings also includes the Bridewell Police Station.
The Midland Railway goods shed dating from 1874 was rebuilt to form car parking for the court complex.
