Abstract:
The building has medium heritage interest as an early twentieth century former school room, added onto the former meeting house of late eighteenth century date. Evidential value: The present meeting house and attached former meeting house range is built of local materials in traditional style and retains evidence for the respective uses of the elements of the building. The building has medium evidential value. Historical value: Friends were meeting in the area from the late seventeenth century and the present building has strong historical associations with local Quaker history and families such as the Ecroyds. The building expresses the ability of Friends to extend accommodation and educational services in the early twentieth century. The building is physically connected to the former meeting house and the two elements continue to be read as one building, however the present meeting house is of medium historical value. Aesthetic value: The building is an interesting example of a design intended to create historical continuity in style with the earlier meeting house adjacent, with some contemporary details in the use of a decorative doorway. Inside, the original staircase has aesthetic value. Visually the building is read together with the attached former meeting house; the whole ensemble has high aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house is important for Friends' use, but also acts as a local resource, offering rooms for community uses. It makes a very positive contribution to the character of the immediate area, adding historical depth and interest. It has medium communal value.
