Bow Street Magistrate's Court Closed after 271 Years
A bit of Tradition is lost. Oscar Wilde received his well deserved sentence in this court and Sir Roger Casement, Irish Patriot, began his journey to the gallows here, (he was the last English Knight to be ceremonially degraded, complete with the hacking off of his spurs!).
Of interest, however, is the quote from Senior District Judge Timothy Workman, the Chief Magistrate for England and Wales, who sat in Bow Street, "Unfortunately there is no value to be placed on history and heritage." How low has England fallen! Our Lady of Walsingham, pray for thy dowry! St George, pray for England!
