The Judge’s Lodging and the National Curriculum
The Judge’s Lodging is an invaluable resource and learning experience for Primary, Secondary and Higher Education. It is ideal for the study of the Victorians within the National Curriculum and can be approached from a range of perspectives: social; cultural; technological; political and aesthetic. Students can compare many aspects of the past to those of the present and use our ‘Hands On’ policy to experience these differences for themselves.
History in your hands
The Judge’s Lodging is a real working Victorian house and is exceptional in allowing total freedom to touch everything. Visitors are actively encouraged to sit down, look in drawers, pump water, experiment with kitchen appliances and even test beds for comfort. (We would rather you didn’t use the commodes!). This proves invaluable in creating a relaxed and stimulating environment in which to learn.
