Burton Upon Trent: County Court


Located on Station Street is the County Court built in 1862 as an Italianate palazzo. The stone faced three storey building features rusticated pilaster sides and is Grade II listed.


The central entablature is carved with the Royal Arms and the motto of the British Monarchy
‘Dieu et mon Droit’ which is French for’ God and my right.’
