Morpeth Court House

Overview

Morpeth Court House, now the Morpeth Museum, bestowed justice from 1862 to c1950. Cases heard before the court included ‘riding a dray (cart) too fast’, insulting language to a policeman and being drunk and disorderly, which could earn seven days in the lock up.
The grand Court House, similar to the Post Office, was an expression of Morpeth’s significance in the 19th century. The Morpeth Court House public clock was a great benefit as few people had timepieces.
