Moorside Room, Kirkbymoorside

The Moorside Room (the old Library), right in the centre of Kirkbymoorside, underwent refurbishment in 2013 to create a light, airy space perfect for exhibiting, with easy access and welcoming new entrance.

Kirkbymoorside is noted as ‘Chirchebi’ in the Domesday book and has served as a trading hub since 1254, when it became a market town.   There is some dispute as to the correct spelling (the alternative spelling being Kirbymoorside, as it is traditionally pronounced), but it is usually and officially spelled with the “k”.  “Kirk” means church and “-by” is the Viking word for settlement, so the name translates as “settlement with a church by the moorside.”
