Moot Hall, Keswick


 Moot Hall in the market square of Keswick was built in 1813, replacing earlier buildings of 1571 and 1695. It was previously used as an assemby room, and now hosts the Keswick Tourist Information Centre and an art gallery. Moot Hall is a Grade II* listed building.

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, and features what the Keswick Tourist Information Board describes as an "unusual one-handed clock" at the top. Formerly an assembly building, Moot Hall contains a Tourist Information Centre on the ground floor, with an art gallery on the floor above.
