A LANDMARK Morpeth building has been put up for sale.

The Grade II-listed Court House, which sits at the southern gateway to the town, has been put on the market.

The building was designed by John Dobson and was built in the early part of the 18th century. It still retains many original features, including vaulted ceilings and a sweeping staircase.

It has had various uses and was historically used as a law court.

It has also served as chief constables’ offices, a restaurant and gym, while part of the building has been converted into privately-owned luxury apartments.

There is currently planning permission to revert part of the Court House back to a restaurant or bar.

The building is on the market with agents Edwin Thompson, with offers in the region of £750,000 freehold, or £50,000 pa leasehold.
