Beaumaris Courthouse is one of Anglesey's most fascinating buildings and one of the oldest courthouses in Britain.

This year the courthouse is celebrating its 400th birthday! Although alterations were made in the 19th century, its original character remains the same. Today cases are heard once a year,

Throughout the centuries the courthouse has witnessed various cases from petty misdemeanours to murder.

1768 - Hugh Jones stole eight cheeses and a quarter of beef - he was publicly whipped in four towns on the island.

1910 - William Murphy was sentenced to death for killing his mistress on Christmas Day. He was hanged in Caernarfon.
