Explore the fascinating world of the Victorian judges at this award-winning historic house.

Please do come and visit us if you can.  We love browsing heritage websites here, but there is nothing like seeing real objects for yourself, or taking in the athmosphere of a historic site.  The Judge's Lodging really does need to be seen to be properly experienced - with our 'hands-on' policy allowing you to wander the rooms as the Victorians would have done, and period lighting, with all the warm glows, gloomy corners and smells, there is no real subsitute for being here.    Use the links below or on the sidebar to find out more information about coming to see us.

If you can't get to see us and or want to use this site for learning and fun, we really welcome you too - please get in touch if there is anything we can help you with.  A big hello to everyone all over the world who is visiting us via this modern means - what would the Victorians think?!

Strange But True

  • list arrowHow did Victorians try out a new invention?

    Test it on the servants of course! That's what happened in 1860 at The Judge's Lodging, when gas lighting was put into the basement and not the Judge's rooms. They wanted to see if they got sick from the fumes. The servants were fine - that's why we got the lights working again.
