Moot Hall Museum

 
 

 

The Moot Hall Museum is a timber-framed building set on the village green at Elstow. Now a museum containing beautiful period furniture, it illustrates the life and traditions of 17th Century England. 

Elstow Moot Hall (or Green House as it was formerly known) was built as a market-house - used for storing the stalls and other equipment for the village fair. It was also a place for hearing disputes arising from the fairs.

In the 19th Century the upper room was used both as a school and a place of worship. Restored by Bedfordshire County Council, Moot Hall is now a museum.

Accessibility: a stairlift has been installed allowing access to the upper floor. Some ancient timbers on the ground floor are uneven
