The Judge's Lodging, Presteigne, Powys awarded by Hudson's Historic Houses & Gardens Heritage the award for 'Best New Discovery' 2016. 


The Museum picked up the highly commended second place in the Best New Discovery category, The Hudson’s Heritage Awards have several categories and The Judge’s Lodging has twice before been honoured in them, being heralded as the Britain’s Best Hidden Gem in 2014. 
Norman Hudson, founder of Hudson’s Historic House Guide, the UK’s leading publication on historic properties open to the public, said the project showed that it must not be forgotten what amazing treasures can be found within collections in small museums throughout the country.

The Judge’s Lodging was by far the smallest historic property honoured at the awards, but this time, there was good reason to be truly amazed by their accolade.


The Museum caters for FIT and group tours by offering a variety of experiences.  For more information, visit Group tours on the Museum's website.  Group audio tours are available on any day and in the evening.
