Little Known History of the CoURT building

The A-listed CoURT building on 1A  Parliament Square was originally designed as the Edinburgh Police Chambers and contained both holding cells and courtroom facilities including the former District Court. The Police Chambers opened in 1840 and acted as the Police Headquarters until 1974 when it moved to Fettes. Within the chambers would have been the Police Commissioners Room, the public court , and the cells. The chambers remained operational and although other cells existed within stations across the city, the cells there were the main holdings for criminals in Edinburgh until the St Leonards Station opened around 1988.
