Abstract:
Come-to-Good meeting house is one of the best-known meeting houses in England, not least due to its picturesque setting and appearance and its memorable name. Built in 1710, a gallery was later inserted and an open linhay for stabling horses was added. The interior is remarkably little altered. Overall, the meeting house has exceptional significance. Evidential value: The meeting house has undergone some alterations and additions during the eighteenth to twentieth centuries. The fabric of the building has the potential to provide further information about its evolution and use. The building has exceptional evidential value. The whole site with the burial ground has high archaeological potential. Historical value: The meeting house is an important early meeting house which survives relatively little altered. It is associated with Catherine Payton Phillips, a notable travelling Quaker minister of the eighteenth century, who is buried here. The meeting house has exceptional historical value. Aesthetic value: The vernacular idiom, the use of local materials, the overall patina of age and the survival of the interior furnishings and fittings all contribute to the high aesthetic value of the building. The 1960s extension is relatively unobtrusive. Communal value: The building's primary use is as a Quaker place of worship with an attached historic burial ground, both of which lend spiritual importance to the site. While the meeting house is currently not available for community lettings, it is a much loved local landmark and visitor attraction. It has exceptional communal value.
