Abstract:
The meeting house at Marazion is the oldest purpose-built meeting house in Cornwall. Erected in 1688/89 on the site of an earlier burial ground, it was altered in 1742 and c.1880 and extended in 1961-62 and 2007. Features of note include the fine ministers' and elders' stand, and the historic sash windows. Overall, the meeting house has exceptional significance. Evidential value: The meeting house is an important survival from the early days of Quakerism in Cornwall. Its built fabric can potentially reveal more about its history and use, for example, to clarify if there ever was a north door. The meeting house has exceptional evidential value. The site in general has high archaeological potential. Historical value: The local meeting has strong associations with George Fox who wrote his Epistle to the Seven Parishes at Marazion. Built shortly before the Act of Toleration came into force, the meeting house largely retains its original planform, and some original and historic furnishings and fittings. It has exceptional historical value. Aesthetic value: The meeting house is a small building in the vernacular tradition which conveys the Quaker testimony of simplicity. The most elaborate item is the ministers' and elders' stand. The building has high aesthetic value. The modern extension is relatively unobtrusive. Communal value: The building is primarily a Quaker place of worship; it is used only occasionally by community groups. It has medium communal value.
