WEST BROMWICH MAGISTRATES COURTS GHOST Hunt chi
The Courts have stood on this site for centuries with many a people sentenced to death or imprisonment. The current courts were built in 1890 to replace the ageing, dilapidated 17th century courts that stood before.
This newer Victorian building is detached and covers 17,000 sq ft in total, these new courts incorporated new and redesigned gallows to accommodate society’s acceptance that undesirables should be sentenced, terminated and efficiently disposed of at a single Law establishment.
The large central court room surrounds the judge in decorative wood panelling and a bomb/ bullet proof cubicle was incorporated in later years to contain and protect the more dangerous prisoners.
There are several less elaborate court rooms to cater for a range of prisoners and crimes and a bank of prison cells in the basement in a secure area, where prisoners await their fate or their final breakfast before meeting their maker.
All records have been securely locked away from society for over 100 years and even though public hangings took place here little detail exists other than the atmosphere you feel when you enter the building. The court closed in April 2011.
