At the Hundred House at Great Witley there is still a Justices Room, for the inn occupied the site of the Hundred Courts of Doddingtree. It was built by Lord Foley, and was first used as a magistrates court in 1790. It was last used as such in 1872. The old cells under the building were later used a s a weigh-bridge. At Cutnall Green, another ancient inn, and the counterpart of the Hundred House, dispensed justices and social pleasure for a large district between Droitwich, Bromsgrove and Kidderminster
