  • Great attraction steeped in history. Enter the room directly ahead of the gift shop first for information and history, (This makes the self guided tour much more interesting). No official route, just explore!
  • Lovely bit of local history to enjoy on our doorstep, worth a visit, great to teach the kids about how people where dealt with and how small Crimes like theft were punishable, 3/4 months of hard labour even for teenagers, which gave them some perspective of how easy they get it at home haha! , both the courthouse and the jail being an option, I'd definitely spend a day in each one and don't rush, take the time to read all the information provided and just explore :)
  • An interesting attraction. Well laid out. Building well restored. Takes about an hour to walk round properly. Educational but expensive for what it is. No designated parking.
  • Step into history. How grim life was and harsh punishments.
  • How punishment was 150 years ago.
