Moot Hall

Saturdays could get more tranquil for either residents of, or visitors to, the borough as from the 2nd April, Moot Hall will be open to the public on Saturdays, from 1 – 4pm.

 

Moot Hall, the mediaeval market-house, was made a permanent museum in 1951, to illustrate English 17th century life and, in particular, the life and works of John Bunyan.

 

Groups may pre-book to visit Moot Hall at other times, on alternative days of the week. Moot Hall is also open on Bank Holiday Mondays and the ‘Elstow May Festival’ will be held on May 14th, from 11am- 4pm.  

 

The Elstow Village Green is open all year round for people wanting to hold picnics, and for both children and adults to play and relax!

 

The Green House (Moot Hall's former name) was designed to serve as a market-house and courtroom, it was built in the late 15th century, possibly by the Elstow Abbey's then carpenter, William Arnold. 

 

If you would like to any further information, or would like to pre-book a visit, contact Moot Hall, on 01234 314 719.
