Heritage Open Days 2021 - Behind the Scenes tour

See behind the scenes at Lancaster's oldest town house nestled beneath Lancaster's historic Castle.
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 and the Museum of Childhood.
See the original features in the basement including evidence of Lancaster's oldest known public toilet!
