Former magistrates court in Haringey goes on sale

Haringey Magistrates’ Court is being put up for sale and could be turned into flats.

The historic Haringey Magistrates Court in Highgate is being put up for sale and could be turned into flats.

The site, which also includes the former Highgate police station and Telfer House, will be release onto the open market this weekend.

The bidding process is expected to begin in early September.

Situated at the junction of Archway Road and Church Road, the three brick buildings were constructed in the 1950s.

As part of a £40million cost-cutting drive, the Ministry of Justice closed the doors of the courthouse last December after 56 years of service to the community.

But its history goes back even further as an original courthouse was destroyed by a Doodlebug bomb in 1944.
