Abstract:
The meeting house was built in the 1680s on land bequeathed by the local Friend Samuel Lucas. It has been very little altered since then, retaining its stand and four benches, as well as a rare example of a rush matting dado. A small extension was added in the 1980s. Overall, the meeting house has exceptional heritage significance. Evidential value:The meeting house and the burial ground have been in Quaker use since the 1680s. The building has the potential to yield further evidence about its past use and development, as well as the people associate with it. Both the meeting house and the burial ground have exceptional evidential value. Historical value: The building has exceptional historical value as a typical small, rural meeting house of the late seventeenth century which retains a typical layout with wall-benches, stand and loose benches. The rush matting dado (albeit renewed) is an important remnant of a local craft and vernacular tradition. Aesthetic value: The building's aesthetic value derives from its patina, small scale, fine details (such as the window furniture), regular stone coursing, and semi-rural setting. The later extension detracts somewhat from the overall appearance although this is diminished by its small scale and discreet location behind the meeting house. Overall, the building has high aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house and the burial ground have been in Quaker use since the 1680s. There is currently no additional community use of the building. The building has medium communal value.
