Description

A National Trust property, this is one of few examples of Georgian ecclesiastical architecture in the Commonwealth. Just 30 years after its construction two wings of the building were converted for use as Criminal Courts, leaving the third as the Penitentiary Chapel, which remained in use until 1961. Each day Volunteer Trust guides conduct tours of this fascinating complex which features underground passages, solitary cells and an execution yard.
