taken 8 months ago, near to Peebles, Scottish Borders, Great Britain

Former Courthouse, Peebles
Former Courthouse, Peebles
Originally a sheriff court and prison, the building dates from 1848. Until a few years ago it housed a bar and restaurant which closed, leaving a few small businesses using the ground floor rooms. It has now been bought for conversion of the upper stories to a private dwelling with self-catering accommodation on the ground floor.

Inside the original layout included on the ground floor a waiting room, three cells (with iron doors) and an exercise yard; first floor a library, offices, court room and two cells; second floor offices for the Procurator Fiscal and the Sheriff. Acknowledgements to Marc Haslam for arranging tours of the building before its conversion.

Peebles Sheriff Court moved to the District Council Offices building in Rosetta Road in 2005 until the court's closure in 2015 and transfer of case hearings to Selkirk. See Walter Baxter's photo NT2441 : Tweeddale District Council Offices.
