Abstract:
Skipton meeting house has high heritage significance as a good example of a small vernacular meeting house, built in 1693, retaining historic fittings of various phases, and enhanced by an attractive burial ground setting. Evidential value: The meeting house has high evidential value for its fabric which incorporates historic joinery and fittings of several phases, from the late seventeenth century to the nineteenth century. The burial ground has archaeological potential. Historical value: Skipton is associated with national and regional meetings of early Quakers in the 1650s, and was important in the establishment of Quakerism in Yorkshire. The meeting house was built in 1693 and fitted with distinctive joinery features that reflect how the building was originally used. The burial ground has also been in use since the 1690s. Aesthetic value: The form and design of the compact building is typical of late seventeenth century vernacular architecture in this area, constructed in local materials. The interior expresses Friends' simple approach to worship and has high significance for the fittings. The attractive setting of the walled burial ground and garden in a ginnel off a main street adds to its aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house is primarily a place for Quaker worship, and the site as a whole is an important community asset in Skipton. The building and the New Room have high communal value.
