Bodmin Courtroom Experience

The Shire Hall and Bodmin Assizes ~ The "Courtroom Experience"

(Closed permanently on 30th September 2019)

Experience a Victorian murder trial - the real, and very controversial case, of Matthew Weeks who was accused of the murder of Charlotte Dymond on Bodmin Moor, and tried here in 1844. Would you find him guilty or not guilty? Would YOU condemn Matthew to the Hangman's Rope?

The Assize Court at Bodmin Shire Hall
The Assize Court in progress...

Guilty or Not Guilty for Matthew Weeks?
Guilty or Not Guilty?... That is the Question!
(and the answer is a very controversial one... would YOU condemn Matthew Weeks?)

The cells at Bodmin Assizes
The cells in the basement of the Shire Hall ~ and waiting to be taken to Bodmin Jail?
(these cells have only room to stand up - the life of a criminal was not one to be recommended!)
