Explore #66: The Magistrates Court and Police Station, somewhere in the UK – June 2014

Back to the UK for this explore of an abandoned Magistrates Court and police station, somewhere in the North of England. The Court closed in 2011 as part of a round of closures of 93 Magistrates and 49 County courts.

I had recced this location in October last year but it was sealed. However, I got a tip-off that it was now doable, so made my way there in the company of new exploring buddies Urbanographer and Wasted Abandon.

Upon gaining access we quickly discovered that the doors through to the cells and the adjoining police station were locked, but after a bit of searching we had soon located the keys!
