Abstract:
The meeting house has high heritage value as a purpose-built late seventeenth century meeting house with historic fittings dating from the eighteenth century, an earlier burial ground and connections to the local Crowley family. Evidential value: The building and site have medium evidential values primarily associated with the potential to yield information about the building's construction and past Quaker activity. Historical value: The meeting house retains its historic layout, as well as a number of features dating from the eighteenth century, including the gallery and seating. The land where the meeting house is sited was given by Ambrose Crowley a prominent blacksmith in Stourbridge. The meeting house and burial ground have high historical value. Aesthetic value: In keeping with Quaker principles, the meeting house is plain, but attractive building, and retains a good set of fitted oak benches, panelling and ironmongery to the windows and doors. The building has high aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house has high communal value as a building developed for the Quakers which has been in use since it opened in 1689. It is also used by local community groups and is open to the public, in conjunction with Heritage Open Days each year in September.
