Judges' Lodgings

Lancaster's oldest town house, once home to Thomas Covell, Keeper of Lancaster Castle during Lancashire's infamous witch trials in 1612, and later lodgings for the 'Hanging' judges at the Assize Courts. Including the Museum of Childhood and an Edwardian school room — there's something for everyone!
