The old constabulary

At Renishaw stands this old constabulary and courthouse building. No longer an official building, it is now a private residence, although the courthouse was (and may still be for all I know) a military museum open to the pubic for a while. The overgrown frontages can make it seem like the structure is abandoned though.

The old constabulary

The building was built in 1904 and the courthouse bore witness to Sylvia Pankhurst, daughter of the suffragette movement leader Emeline, being charged with seditious speech and fined fifty pounds.

People arrested
And children of suffragettes
Once passed through this place
