Cell door from Moot Hall jail



Cell door from Moot Hall jail

When it was in use as the municipal offices, the Moot Hall was also the police station and had cells inside to hold offenders. These cells are still in existence today, without the doors. The small hatch in the door would have been to check on a prisoner and perhaps give them their meals.
