Site: Old Middlesex Sessions House (1 memorial)
EC1, Clerkenwell Green
Built in 1779, designed by Thomas Rogers. The panels on the façade are all carved by Joseph Nollekens. In the 19th century this building was "swapped" with a building at Parliament Square which became the Middlesex Guildhall. As ever, Ornamental Passions has an excellent entry on this building.
The 1952 film 'I believe in you' uses the exterior of this building as the courthouse at the centre of the lives of probation officers and their charges, but it had ceased its legal function in 1921.
