The History of Sessions House
Sessions House is situated in the historic market town of Beverley. The beautiful treatment rooms and hair salon are built within the original Sessions House Crown Court, which has been lovingly restored.
The grade ll* listed building was designed by Watson and Pritchett of York in C. 1804 taking 7 years to build. The original statue of the Scales of Justice and the Royal Coat of Arms still adorne the building. Many interior features including the original dock create a feeling of understated luxury and a warm friendly atmosphere. Gone are the days when the likes of Dick Turpin stood within the dock to be charged before his final trial in York. The modern day Sessions House now bares witness to affordable luxury and complete professionalism in privileged surroundings.
Facts about Sessions House
The first statue of Justice broke on its journey from the factory of Eleanor Coade in London and a second one was sent at an additional cost of £21.
The Royal Coat of Arms came from the same firm; the secret of making Coade is now lost.
The cast iron Pisoir located at the north side of the garden was made in Birmingham in C. 1855 and is a rare survivor and thought to be one of only two surviving. The star motifs and geometrical boarders are a particular outstanding feature.
The trees to the front elevation form a noble feature in the landscape of New Walk with the original tree planting supplied by the famous York nurseryman Telford in C. 1809. The outstanding Copper Beech cost 2 shillings and sixpence and the great Sycamore cost 3 shillings and nine pence. Surrounding shrubs have been replaced in the original locations.
