Judges' Lodgings, Church Street, Lancaster, Lancashire, LA1 1YS
The Judges’ Lodgings is Lancaster’s oldest town house and a Grade I listed building. Originally home of the Keeper of Lancaster Castle, Thomas Covell, it later became a residence for the ‘Hanging Judges’ when they visited Lancaster Castle for the Assize Courts. The Judges’ Lodgings is now home to a nationally important collection of Gillow furniture displayed in rooms furnished in the style of the Regency period. You can also visit the Museum of Childhood where you can experience the Victorian school room and see an enchanting display of children’s dolls, toys and games from 18th century to the present day. The recent completion of essential structural work to the building also means that, for the first time, members of the public will be able to view the gardens to the rear of the Judges' Lodgings and share their ideas about the future development of the space.
This event took place in September 2013 and the entry is now archived.
