Abstract:
An attractive stone built meeting house with high heritage value as a good example of an early eighteenth-century meeting house. It is architecturally modest but retains original furnishings from 1859 and an attached burial ground. 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 and burial ground have high historic value. The meeting room retains its historic internal layout, as well as a number of original features, including the minister's stand and some seating. Aesthetic value: The meeting house is very much part of the distinctive character of Alston making use of local materials in a traditional manner. The interior of the meeting room has been well preserved and contains original historic furnishings. The burial ground has unmarked graves in line Quaker tradition, part of the aesthetic value of the site. Communal value: The building is a place for Quakers to meet and also well-used by the community, local charities and as a place for social and fellowship meetings by the Methodists; it has a high community value.
