County court building. 1898, by Henry Littler. Red brick in Flemish bond, with sandstone dressings and slate roof. Approximately square plan on corner site (continuing the Magistrates Court and Police Station range). Elizabethan style. 2 and a half storeys over basement, 4 bays, with sillbands to all floors, a canted turret to the left corner and 3 unequal stepped gables. The 2nd bay contains a large depressed entrance archway with chamfered surround and moulded head containing a recessed Tudor-arched doorway with tympanum lettered "COUNTY COURT", flanked by transomed one-light windows with hood-moulds. The ground floor has large double-transomed mullioned windows and the 1st floor has similar single-transomed windows, all with Tudor-arched top lights; the 3 attic gables have mullion-and-transom windows of 6, 4 and 6 lights. The canted corner has one-light windows in each of its 3 sides matching the style of the other windows, and its turret has an embattled parapet and steep octagonal roof surmounted by an open cupola finished with a finial. The 5-bay left return (to King Street West) is in similar style but the 1st 3 bays are a single large gabled composition with a 2-storey canted bay window in the centre, and the 4th has a very large multiple-light window to the raised ground floor. INTERIOR not inspected. The building forms a group with Magistrates Court building, to which it is an extension.
