Moot Hall is a medieval market house, originally built for the nuns of Elstow Abbey on the village green. Restored in 1950 by Bedfordshire County Council, Moot Hall is now a small, but beautiful museum. We have exhibits relating to John Bunyan, Elstow's famous author, plus a collection of 16th and 17th century furniture.
