Moot HallThe Moot Hall is a unique medieval brick building and has Grade I listed status. Dating from 1420 it is believed to be one of the earliest secular decorated brick buildings in England. Consisting of three floors and a small exercise yard, it has some unique features that will surely appeal to scouts as a location for period dramas.
The ground floor is medieval brick with some wainscoting on the lower half of the wall. This room was once the town gaol and retains its original prison door dating from the 16th century. There is a winding brick stair that is blocked-off at the first floor level but is still a visible feature. There is also a medieval door that leads by narrow passageway to a 19th century prison exercise yard which retains its original flagstones, graffiti and stone steps. To the left of this passageway there is a small semi-subterranean cellar, which is believed to have been used as a cell or dungeon.
