The name given to the tight trousers worn by some Regency gentlemen, such as the notorious Beau Brummell and his ‘dandy’ followers, as they showed off their leg muscles.
Paranormal Investigation at The Judge’s Lodging
The Judge’s Lodging recently opened its doors to paranormal investigation teams and has been featured twice on Most Haunted.
You will have access to the full suite of 14 period rooms of the building, including the judge’s apartments, servants’ workrooms, two holding cells and the vast courtroom itself. The building was opened as a court and judge’s residence in 1826, seeing cases of all types from throughout the county. It continued to operate as a court for 150 years. The previous building on the site was the county gaol; a grim affair according to surviving accounts. It was demolished to make way for the grand building you see today.
We have a modern, well lit room which can be used as a ‘base’, where you can store equipment, meet up and take breaks. There is a kitchen where you can make drinks. We can provide you with cups, if you would like them. 3 toilets are also available.
As we run the town’s visitor information centre, we can also help you and your guests find accommodation, pre-investigation meals or other requirements. Please just ask.
If you are considering booking your investigation team with us, please get in touch with us, so we can check that the date you want is available.
