UK West Ham Magistrates’ and Coroners’ Court, Stratford 2017

Recommended Posts

Awesome mooch about. Proper derpy and very photographic.

 

History: 

 

The West Ham court house, also know as West ham Magistrates’ or West ham Police and Coroner’s court, is a Yellow brick Victorian era Italianate Court house built in 1884 and officially opened in 1885. The complex of buildings were designed by the Borough Architect & Engineer Lewis Angell. West Ham court house was later extended by John Morley in 1901 and included a new frontage.

 

Due to a new court house being built within the Stratford area, the older West Ham court house was phased out and vacated circa 2010. The buildings were granted Grade 2 listed status during the 1980’s as being a historical building. Unfortunately, a in December 2013 gutted court room 2 and destroyed the upper floors; 2014 saw emergency conservation work such as scaffolding holding up court room 1 and a temporary roof to prevent further decay to the buildings.

      After hearing about the permanent closure of this well known super store giant, we felt like a part of our childhood was gone forever.
      In the store we visited, we found the names of those loyal workers written on the wall with one of those people having  worked there for 20 years,
      but unfortunately we couldn't go back and get a photo due to my camera running out of juice.
      But all is not lost as there is a full video on my friend's youtube channel so check it out!

      Brick production at the Clock House Brickworks dates back to 1933 when the Clock House Brick Company Ltd was founded to exploit a rich seam of Weald Clay that had been discovered.  By 1941 the original company entered into liquidation due to the war effort and the lack of need for the hollow-block ceramics they were producing. A share of the company was sold to the London Brick Company, who in 1945 eventually purchased the company to avoid a full closure.  Production was vastly increased, in part to the housing boom of the 50’s, and during the 60’s the site was rebuilt to cope with the increased demand.  The London Brick Company was acquired by Hanson PLC in the 1980’s and the works was refitted. In 1998, Clockhouse Bricks were used by three major exhibitors in that year’s Ideal Home Show and in 2000, Clock House was said to be Hanson Brick’s main soft mud production site, producing around 42 million bricks per year
