Moot Hall

Moot Hall is located on the Market Square in Brampton. It was built in 1817 for the Earl of Carlisle, replacing an earlier 17th century hall. Courts were once held here. The hall was given to the Parish Council in 1896 and extended on ground floor. Moot Hall is a Grade II* listed on the National Heritage List for England. The building now hosts Brampton Tourist Information.

The county magistrates hold a petty-session every alternate Wednesday; and courts leet and baron for the barony of Gilsland are held at Easter and Michaelmas, in the town-hall, a neat octagonal edifice with a cupola, erected by the Earl of Carlisle in 1817, on the site of the former hall, in the market-place, the lower part being formed into a piazza, under which butter, eggs, poultry, etc., are sold on the market-day.
