Judge’s Lodging, York

The Judge’s Lodging is situated at No. 9 Lendal, in York. It is a brick built building of ca.1718, of three wide bays and three storeys over a basement. It has a tripartite front door with Ionic columns and a mask keystone set against a swagged stone surround. The elevation is articulated by two-storey giant angle pilasters without capitals. The Entrance Hall has giant Corinthian columns. The staircase has a fine wooden balustrade made up of Ionic columns. There is a vaulted first floor passage leading to three bedrooms of very differing character.

Before I had given my recommendations

Despite some inevitable changes to the building there is a high degree of survival of original building fabric, architectural forms and details. The Judge’s Lodging is now used as a hotel and bar, and is listed Grade I.

I was employed to provide advice on the decoration of the exterior and a number of the interiors.
