Abstract:
The meeting house has medium heritage value. Its modern design by Frederick Gregory creates a light and spacious interior and an exterior which is bold and striking. It was built on the site of an earlier Quaker school and master's house dating from the mid eighteenth century; the site has high heritage significance. Evidential value: The current meeting house is a modern building with low evidential value. However, it was built on the site of an earlier Quaker school and master's house which gives the site medium evidential value. Historical value: The meeting house itself has low historical significance. However, the site has high historical value as a site of a former Quaker school which adds to the local context to Quakerism in the area; some historic furnishings are retained in the present meeting house. Hartshill is located close to the birth place of George Fox, the Founder of the Society of Friends. Aesthetic value: This modern building has medium aesthetic value and makes a neutral contribution to the character of the townscape. It was designed by Frederick Gregory who is known to have experimented with different roof forms in Quaker meeting houses. Communal value: The meeting house has high communal value as a building developed for Quakers and in use since it opened in 1972. The building provides a local community focus and its facilities used by a number of local groups.
