18th Century ‘Judges Lodgings’ building in Nottingham city designated ‘at risk’ by Historic England

The house on High Pavement has stood empty for many years.

 

The townhouse, with possible C15 or C16 origins, was rebuilt between 1728 and 1733, and remodelled and extended in 1833 to form judges’ lodgings, subsequently converted to offices in 1922, and further extended in 1930 and 1949.

The building is in a very bad condition.
