Abstract:
Statement of Significance: The building is of high heritage significance as a purpose-built 18th century meeting house which retains early fittings in their original configuration. The building has an attractive rural setting in front of a burial ground. Later alterations have been undertaken with sensitivity so that the character of the building has been preserved. Evidential value: The building is constructed using traditional Pennine materials and techniques. The fabric of the building and the burial ground have potential for yielding further evidence about the history of the building and the community which built it. The building and site have high evidential value. Historical value: The meeting house is historically associated with a local network of Friends, in particular members of the Ecroyd family, who set up meetings in the area during the eighteenth century, and were probably involved in designs for the building. The survival of the original historic layout and the early fixtures adds to the significance of the building which has high historical value. Aesthetic value: The attractive Georgian building was built using traditional materials and methods typical of the date and Pennine location. The interior retains original or early furnishing. The burial ground is managed as a garden. As a whole the site has high aesthetic significance. Communal value:The meeting house is primarily in Quaker use, however it is regularly opened to heritage groups. The building is a key structure in the conservation area and has medium communal value.
