Abstract:
Cartmel Meeting House has high significance as a good example of an attractive, well-maintained mid-Victorian meeting house, retaining some original fittings and designed by well-regarded architect Alfred Waterhouse. The site also contains an unaltered gig house and stable block and with its green, open setting the building makes a positive contribution to Cartmel conservation area. Evidential value: The meeting house has relatively low evidential value, as a single-phase building, but the fabric could reveal more about how the building was first designed and constructed. The site is unlikely to have archaeological potential. Historical value: Quakerism has a long history in this area. The building has high historical significance as a purpose-built meeting house that eventually replaced the late 17th century meeting house at Height. The gig house and stables also have high historical value and illustrate Quaker provision for transport to meetings in an age before the motor car. Aesthetic value: The meeting house has high aesthetic significance as a good example of a Victorian meeting house that retains some original joinery such as the stand, dado panelling and roof structure. Its association with the architect Waterhouse adds to this significance. Communal value: The meeting house has communal value as the local focus for Friends since 1859, and as a building that contributes to the conservation area, but it is not well used by the community outside the Friends. It has medium communal value overall.
