Abstract:
The meeting house is a part of a small complex of late mediaeval and seventeenth-century buildings given to Bridport Quakers by Daniel Taylor in 1697 for use as a meeting house and almshouses. The meeting house was re-fitted in the early eighteenth century and there have been several subsequent alterations. Many of the internal fittings were removed in 1958 but the meeting room still retains something of its original character. The building is of high overall significance. Evidential value: The building is the product of serial alterations and accretions with much evidence of past phases of use. It is of high evidential value. Historical value: The meeting house and the contiguous almshouse buildings form a complex of Quaker-related buildings which is of high historical value. Aesthetic value: The exterior is unassuming and the interior lost many of its fittings in the 1950s. The building is of medium aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house has been in continuous use for Quaker worship since the late seventeenth century and is now also used by the wider community. It is of high communal value.
