    Details

    The history of the Moot Hall is sketchy, but there are reports of a significant building on the site as early as 1571. The current building was erected in 1813, and since then has served as a courthouse, a prison, a museum, a town hall and even a butter and fruit market! The famous one-handed clock can be seen above the west end of the hall. The building is now home to Keswick’s Tourist Information Centre.
