Far Welter’d in the Court House

Far Welter’d in the Court House

A Heritage Open Day event in Louth at the Sessions House, Eastgate.

Wednesday 18 September at 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Held in the Old Court Room in Sessions House (originally the Magistrate’s Court) and home to the Brown’s Panorama, members of the Far Welter’d East Lincolnshire Dialect Society, will be reading original newspaper reports from court cases written by William Brown in the mid-19th century (supplied by the Louth Museum), along with extracts from Dr. Richard Gurnham’s new book ‘People of the Panorama’ – All spoken in old Lincolnshire dialect!

Find out more about the unlawful goings on in Louth, the sheep stealing landlord, the harbouring of prostitutes at the Dog & Duck and how the new Superintendent of the Police, John Tacey, battled against crime in the market town from his base at the Mansion House, the then Police House and lock-up.

Come along to enjoy this unique experience when all things ‘William Brown’, come together under the watchful eye of his original panorama paintings.
