Abstract:
Statement of Significance The building has high heritage significance as a fine example of a nineteenth century meeting house, replacing a seventeenth century building on the same site. The meeting room retains much of its original interior simplicity and Victorian fittings, in a rural setting which includes a schoolroom and stable building dating from 1726 (listed Grade II). Evidential value:It is likely that there are below-ground remains of the earlier meeting house on this rural site. The buildings and site are of medium evidential value. Historical value: The site and the buildings have high historical value, as a seventeenth century Quaker site, redeveloped in the nineteenth century. The meeting house interior retains historic features including the panelled gallery and some seating. Frandley meeting has strong associations with George Fox, the founder of the Religious Society of Friends which adds to its historical significance. Aesthetic value:The meeting house has a high aesthetic value. It is an attractive late Victorian building which retains much of its original external and internal architectural detail. With the 1726 school room and stable, it makes a positive contribution to the street scene. Communal value: Frandley Meeting has been the centre of a thriving Quaker community since the 1670s. The site has high communal value for the meeting house used for worship and for a wide variety of community purposes.
