Behind what might be called a neo-warehouse elevation, the eleven flats that form Florin Court (8 Dock Street) were built in 1996–7 with Guinea Court (65 Royal Mint Street), three more flats, linked to the rear with a shared and roofed parking area. These four-storey blocks were developed for Weston Homes Plc (Ray Blake) with Patrick Howard Design (Charles Nash), all of Bishops Stortford. The names presumably refer to the proximity of the Royal Mint.1
