Warwick Crown Court in Session 2010

The Inspiration:

(freehand and painted in water based in oils)

Commissioned by the Mitchell Gallery in Warwick during 2010.

The history of Warwick Crown Court in Northgate Street dates back to the 18th Century and inspired the creation of this painting.

It was formerly a County Gaol dating back to the 13th century.

Site of Post Medieval Gaol, Northgate Street

The Judiciary transferred to a new recently constructed Crown Court Building located in Royal Leamington Spa during 2011.

It was opened by the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh on 4 March 2011.
