Abstract:
The meeting house at Penrith has high heritage significance as a late seventeenth-century building used as the first dissenting place of worship in Penrith. The meeting room retains original furnishings dating from 1803. Evidential value: The meeting house and burial ground is in an area of medieval and post-medieval domestic and industrial activity, confirmed by recent medieval finds from the site. The meeting house and site have high evidential value. Historical value:The meeting house is a late seventeenth century building which is significant as the first dissenting place of worship in Penrith. It retains most if its historic layout (i.e. the meeting room with two upper galleries). The meeting house and burial ground have high historic value associated with the documentary evidence and building fabric. Aesthetic value: The meeting house is very much part of the distinctive character of Penrith, making use of local materials in Georgian vernacular style. The exterior design is characterised by plainness. The meeting room has a distinctive plan, the result of the additions and alterations, including the now enclosed galleries which are more intricate than typical examples in other meeting houses. The burial ground has unmarked graves and simple headstones following Quaker tradition, which adds to the aesthetic value of the site. Communal value: The Meeting house has high communal value as a building developed for the Quakers which has been in use since 1699. The building now provides a local community focus and its facilities are used by different groups.
