Abstract:
The closed meeting house has medium significance as a former Sunday school built in the 1870s by a Non-Conformist Church in Whitehaven, but is hidden from surrounding streets by adjoining buildings. Evidential value:The building and site have medium evidential value associated with the potential to yield information about the site's use prior to the 1870s, from below-ground archaeology. Historical value:The meeting house site has medium historic value, associated with the previous Non-Conformist school and complex of adjoining church buildings. There are few historic features, except for a plaque from 1879, but the external fabric of the building remains. Aesthetic value: The building is typical of small Victorian church school buildings, with a high open roof and gothic-style windows associated with schools built by religious organisations. The interior is plain without features of architectural interest. Communal value: The building is no longer in use, and its communal value is currently low, relating to the short-lived presence of the Friends' Whitehaven Meeting and former school use.
