Maclean Courthouse was probably designed by the prodigious colonial architect James Barnet and built in 1891-3. The verandah cast iron lace bears the initials of the then Queen, Victoria Regina. The first case tried under her name concerned Henry Twyford who had absconded from his apprenticeship, a very common crime of the Victorian era.
It sits on a lovely spot overlooking the river to Ashby.
