Abstract:
Statement of Significance The building has medium heritage significance as an example of purpose-built stables and carriage shed built in 1831 to serve for the original meeting house, extended in the 1880s for school room use and in the twentieth century for use as a meeting house. The interior's aesthetic value has been diminished slightly by the twentieth century additions. The 1830s meeting house, listed Grade II*, remains on site but no longer in Quaker use. Evidential value: As a building dating from 1831 and altered in phases, the building has medium evidential value. The burials on the site could yield evidence about past Quakers; the burial ground has high evidential value. Historical value: The meeting house is an early nineteenth century stable and carriage house range, adapted and extended in 1881 and again in 1995 to form the current venue for worship. The building has been in Quaker use since it was first built in 1831 but has undergone changes which illustrate the evolution of Quaker activity in the area. The meeting house has high historical value. Aesthetic value:The building is a handsome former stable and coach house range, characterised by its functional style and plainness. The design, materials, and detailing of the building, along with the former meeting house and burial ground, gives the site high aesthetic value. Communal value: The site remains in Quaker use, but is also a valued community resource. The building and site contribute to the character of the area and have high communal value.
