Abstract:
Airton meeting house has high significance as a good example of a vernacular Yorkshire Quaker meeting house, with fittings dating from the late seventeenth or early eighteenth century. It has an attractive village setting with a contemporary burial ground and attached cottage, and a refurbished Barn available for lettings. Evidential value: The buildings and burial ground have high evidential value, and there may have been earlier buildings on this site. Historical value: The meeting house has high historical value as a rural meeting house associated with local weavers William and Alice Ellis who gave the building to the meeting and are buried here. Aesthetic value: The building has high significance for its aesthetic value as a good example of stone meeting house built in the local vernacular style, and retaining some original fittings in a little-altered interior. The burial ground and the stone wall with bench enhance the setting of the building. Communal value: The meeting house is used for worship by a small group of local Quakers and is also the only community space available in the village and local area, so it has high communal value.
