Abstract:
The building was erected in c.1845 on the site of an earlier meeting house of the 1690s. It was designed by Francis Fox, a Quaker railway architect from Teignmouth and a connection of the local Fox family who were prominent local woollen manufacturers. Although the exterior of the building is severely functional, the interior meeting rooms still retain much of their original character and the whole is of high heritage significance. Evidential value: The burial ground may contain burials dating from the late seventeenth century. Overall, the site and building are of medium evidential value. Historical value: Wellington was an important Quaker centre in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, with several prominent families including the Foxes. The building itself is an interesting example of meeting house internal planning. The site has high historical value. Aesthetic value: Francis Fox's building is a very plain structure, but the internal plan is unusual and ingenious and the fittings and furnishings of the two meeting rooms and the gallery have survived more or less intact. Principally for the interior, the building is of high aesthetic value. Communal value: The building has been used by Quakers, since its opening in c.1845. More recently the building has also been used by other local groups. The building has high communal value.
