Archive 2018: Berwick Magistrates Court

2018 Venue 4     

Church Street next door to the Police Station

Visit this Court where local Magistrates have reviewed cases for over 100 years and see a small exhibition on Crime and Punishment in Berwick. The building opened in 1901 housing the court and police station, where Magistrates heard cases relating to minor crimes committed in the area. Initially it operated as a Petty Sessions Court and latterly as a Magistrates Court. The exhibition will highlight some of the crimes committed in Berwick in the past and how the town dealt with law and order.
