The History of Warwick Old Courts
Warwick Courts was built in 1750 to the designs of Sanderson Miller
The Law Courts at The Old Shire Hall were used by the judiciary until 2010. Originally used for assizes and quarter sessions, the courts served as crown and county courts following the Court Act of 1971. The octagonal courtrooms 1 and 2 are identical in style, with elaborately decorated high-domed ceilings and Corinthian columns. The tiered seating surrounds the canopied judge’s chair which still displays the hook upon which the black cap, traditionally worn when passing the death sentence, would hang.
Guests are still able to retrace the steps of sentenced prisoners from the dock, through the back of the courtroom and down to the holding cells which were still in use until late November 2010.
A flight of stone steps leads from the basement to the darkened 17th century dungeon which dates back to the original county gaol. These well-trodden steps were worn down by centuries of prisoners, who were chained to posts and exposed to the elements from a small grated opening above.
