Taunton Magistrates Court
Directly opposite the police station and only a 100m from the old prison stands the magistrates court - very convenient!
Prisoners can be taken from the police cells through an underground passage into the court cells & then to the chambers.
Later when (if?) found guilty and the magistrate gives the offender a custodial sentence the dramatic phrase 'take him down Bailiff' really does mean down!
Taunton daily Tunes goes back to 1979 with Gary Numan and 'Are Friends Electric?' great tune, recently recycled by the Sugarbabes - just don't let him fly your plane or provide a sperm sample.....
