Long Description:
This building is an English Heritage Grade II listed building. It was designed by Mr R C Reeves, the County Court Surveyor to an Italianate design.

UK courts of law display the monarch's coat of arms because the monarch is the fount of justice in the UK and the law Court is part of the Court of the monarch.

The lion on the arms of The United Kingdom is the heraldic device used to represent England. We can tell that this is an old version of the coat of arms because the current monarch uses a plain harp on the shield to represent Northern Ireland rather than a harp with a winged female as is the case here.

It is a rather grand version of the arms, and instead of being carved in relief as normal, the arms are made with 3D figures of the lion and the unicorn. They are shown in the prone position rather than standing as is the normal case.
