Court Room and Jury Room

This perfectly preserved 19th century well court was used by the magistrates in the town until the middle 20th century and has the feel of ordered authority in it’s simple colour scheme. It has the magistrates bench, the witness stand, the accused’s dock and the well, with seating around a large table for the lawyers. Seating for the jury overlooks the well.
