WINCHESTER JUSTICE


Invited by the High Sheriff of Hampshire to join her in sitting in Court viewing a trial being taken by a London High Court Judge in Winchester. Winchester has many more High Court judge trials than Guildford serving all the south-east coastal counties. The court buildings are on a larger and grander scale than Guildford with a fantastic view of Winchester Cathedral and also very comfortable Judges Lodgings. The case we witnessed was the 20th day of a murder trial with four in the dock. It has been well reported in the press involving a burglary that turned into murder. Very interesting to hear top class barristers at work.
