West Ham Court House, West Ham Lane E15 - Newham

Court house built in 1884 to the design of Lewis Angell. Having been vacant for many years, and suffering from theft and vandalism, the building sustained serious fire damage in 2014. Floors and ceilings have collapsed and much historic fabric has been lost. The building is in an extremely bad condition. The Local Authority are undertaking essential asbestos remediation, protective and stabilisation works to secure the building, with partial grant funding from Historic England, prior to exploring options for its long-term future.
