Moate gets its name from the nearby motte and bailey. The town originated with the Quakers who settled here and started up industries in the area near the end of the 17th century. Moate's earliest building is 'The Castle', an early 16th century rectangular, three storey building, which is still inhabited. Beside the castle is a Quaker graveyard, and the remains of the Quaker Meeting House which was built in 1697. Moate today is a thriving market town with a large cattle and dairy industry.
