The Moot Hall was built was built during the first half of the 16th century. The style of the building suggests to one expert that it was built about 1520-1550. Though it houses the Aldeburgh Museum, pleasingly it retains its original purpose as the venue for Aldeburgh Town Council.
THE WENTWORTH HOTEL
The Wentworth has been run by a member of the Pritt family since 1920. Unlike other hotels in the town which have gone through a renaissance after periods of character sapping management by large chains, The Wentworth is an old friend and has been managed to a consistently high standard since I first visited in the 1950s.
