Restored Georgian jail and courthouse that is ideal for kids! Tons to see and het involved in. Interactive without any digital rubbish. Highly recommended.
The Georgian prison and courthouse in the centre of the village has been brilliantly restored as a fascinating museum that gives a vivid insight into life behind bars from medieval times up till the 19th century. You can sit in on an 1820 courtroom trial, then visit the cells below and learn all about some of the delightful prison pursuits, such as branding with a hot iron, ear nailing and public whipping. The whole experience is further enhanced by the guides,
who are dressed as warders and prisoners. Makes you want to stay on the right side of the law, though, thankfully conditions have improved – as you will see for yourself.
