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 –
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.
