Courthouse Museum: The former Quarter Sessions Courthouse built in 1830 with the Jury Room where there are a pair of Halberds displayed on the wall. Also on display are books containing not only the statutes which the court had to follow, but a host of Justices' Manuals and Guides from the 18th and 19th Centuries. In the Justices' Retiring Room there are portraits of many past magistrates. In the Court Room are the seats for the Justices raised in a high position over the rest of the court. In the well sat the Clerk to the Court and any advocates representing the defendants. The three boxes facing the Justices are, left to right, two docks and the witness box, an audio visual presentation (approx. running time 10 mins.) gives examples of actual cases. Model figures enable visitors to see what a typical 19th Century scene would have been like inside the Court Room.
