The Judge´s Lodging was once called `the most commodious and elegant apartments for a judge in all England and Wales´ (Lord Chief Justice Campbell, 1855), however decay beckoned Radnorshire´s disused Shire Hall into obscurity. Now, aided by an interior hardly touched by time and original furnishings discarded in attics, extensive research and restoration has re-awakened this `Victorian fossil´. From the stunningly restored judge´s apartments to the dingy servants´ quarters below you can explore their gaslit world. Damp cells remind you of the building´s true purpose, along with the vast courtroom where your imagination in captured by the echoing trial of William Morgan, local duck thief.
