(Former) County Court, 56 Westgate Road, NE1

  • Description

    "Built 1864 (the date is carved below the cornice above the ground floor) in the classical style of the period thought suitable for public buildings, although with unusual inventiveness in the treatment of the window surrounds; the Royal Arms can be seen over the archway on the left. The building is Grade II listed http://list.historicengland.org.uk/resultsingle.aspx?uid=1024731 ; the listing includes the piers, railings and gate at the front. The Buildings of Grainger Town - No.188. See [[4406042]]." Photo by Mike Quinn, 2013.
