Abstract:
Statement of Significance: A modest building of 1974/75 that provides good facilities for both the Quakers and community groups, but has low architectural interest and low heritage value. The site has high archaeological potential, as there was a previous meeting house and burial ground on the site, within the centre of Chester. Evidential value: The site of the meeting house has high evidential value; it is within Chester Area of Archaeological Importance (one of only five designated in England). There is the potential for the survival of below-ground archaeology; a previous meeting house dating from 1703 and former burial ground were on this site. Historical value:The meeting house building has low historical significance, however, the site provides local context for the long history of Quakers in the area. Aesthetic value: This modern building has low aesthetic value and makes a neutral contribution to the character of the conservation area. Communal value: The site has been in Quaker use since the 1700s. The present meeting house is used by a number of local community groups.
