Abstract:
The meeting house was built in 1829 using a planform and main elevation nearly identical to the earlier meeting house at Truro (qv). It retains many original features, such as the central flagstone corridor with sliding sash screens and the ministers' and elders' stand. It has high overall significance. Evidential value: Though it has been extended, the original planform is still discernible and many fixtures and fittings are still in situ, which are evidence of Quaker tradition and worship. The building has high evidential value. The site with the attached burial ground has high archaeological potential. Historical value: The meeting house of 1829 is closely related to the Truro meeting house of 1825 as both share the same planform and elevational design. Further research might uncover the connection and possibly the name of an architect or builder. The meeting house has high historical value. Aesthetic value: The building is an urban meeting house built towards the end of the Georgian period. The main elevation was built to a high standard, with high quality Pentewan ashlar and symmetrical sash windows. Inside, there is fine woodwork, notably in the screens, the stand and panelling. The meeting house has high aesthetic value. Communal value: In addition to Quaker use, the meeting house is also well-used by the local community. It has high communal value.
