An early 19th century grey clay brick building formerly the courthouse, now the Shire Hall. It was designed by W. McIntosh Brooks in 1836, in a Tudor style. The strong design reflects the serious purpose of the building. The 18th century gaol originally stood at the rear. It has now been demolished.
