The Moot Hall

The Moot Hall is a prominent Grade II* listed moot hall building situated at the southern end of Main Street in Keswick, Cumbria, England. It was originally built in 1571, and was rebuilt in 1695; the current building dates to 1813. Built of lime-washed stone and slate walling, there is a square tower on the north end with a round-arched doorway and a double flight of steps inside,[1] and features what the Keswick Tourist Information Board describes as an "unusual one-handed clock" at the top. Formerly an assembly building,[2] Moot Hall contains a Tourist Information Centre on the ground floor, with an art gallery on the floor above.[3]
