Moot Hall, Briggate, Leeds 1816
1816. Moot Hall built about 1618. Rebuilt in 1710. Demolished in 1826 and a corn exchange built at the top of Briggate. The white marble statue of Queen Anne by Andrew Carpenter, gift of Alderman Milner, was placed in front of Moot Hall 1713, and removed to top of Briggate in 1828 before going to the City Art Gallery. Moot Hall was the scene of many pageants notably when Charles 1 made the town into a Royal Borough. The heads of three executed men in 1664 were also said to have been placed on spikes at Moothall End (Mattison M and Meakin W, 1908, The Romance of Old Leeds, p4). Artist Thomas Taylor. Engraver Charles Heath. Also reproduced by Alf Mattison from the engraving.
