Lincoln’s historic Judge’s Lodgings back on market for £850k

A piece of local history is up for sale

The Grade II Listed Judge’s Lodgings, situated in between Lincoln’s castle and cathedral, has been listed on the market for £850,000.

The building is steeped in history, having been built in around 1820 by architect William Hayward to serve as the crown court.

It was given a two storey extension in the 1960s to the rear of the property, which contains various bedrooms and other amenity space, while a small garden can be found to the side of the property, with pedestrian access off Castle Hill.

The ‘Permitted User’ clause allows for the 501 square metre property to be reimagined into a variety of uses, including a theatre, public house, live music venue, public hall, library, museum or retail unit.
