Abstract:
Settle meeting house has high significance as an early example of a Yorkshire Quaker meeting house built in the 1670s and extended and remodelled in the nineteenth century, and more recently. It retains some original fittings and has an attractive setting within a walled burial ground. Evidential value: The building and site has medium evidential value, as a purpose-built Quaker meeting house site developed in phases from the 1670s, with burial ground. Historical value: The meeting house has high historical value as a Quaker meeting house developed from 1678, with educational facilities provided in the nineteenth century. Notable Quakers from Settle include George Birkbeck, pioneer of adult education and mechanics' institutes. The interior retains historic fittings such as hinged shutters which reflect past patterns of use. Aesthetic value: The building has high significance for its aesthetic value as a good example of a vernacular meeting house built in domestic style in the 1670s, retaining an attractive historic interior. The nineteenth century addition and 2004 extension have not spoilt the character of the building. The burial ground and garden setting enhances the significance of the building. Communal value : The meeting house is used for Quaker worship and also serves a wide range of local community groups; it has high communal value.
