Abstract:
A purpose-built meeting house of the 1950s, of low evidential, historical and aesthetic value, but high communal value. Reset grave markers from Quakers Friars and the Central Meeting House site are of high evidential and historical value. Evidential value: The meeting house was built in the 1950s and there is little about it to denote its use (the original lettering outside the main entrance has been removed). The building is of low evidential value, but the reset burial markers in the car park area are of high evidential value. Historical value: The site was formerly on farmland, possibly at or near the site of a pre-conquest estate. The farmland was sold to the local authority in 1929, and is now largely characterised by interwar and post-war council housing. The meeting house belongs to the post-war development of the estate, on a large site which had been judged unsuitable for housing. Its historical value as a building is low, but the reset grave markers (and possibly the site) are of high historical value. Aesthetic value: Although the design of the meeting house is fit for purpose and not unpleasing, the building is of overall of low aesthetic value. The aesthetic value of the site resides more in the garden, and in the garden views from the meeting house. Communal value: In addition to use by Friends, the building is well used by Dance Voice, a local charity, and by other community groups. It is of high communal value.
