Abstract:
The building has high heritage significance as a meeting house purpose-built in 1963, in a modernist style by well-regarded post-war architects Beech and Thomas. The meeting room has been little altered and is a dramatically-lit internal space with some furnishings of note. Evidential value: Heswall meeting house has an overall low level of significance for evidential value. Historical value:The building has high historic value associated with the documentary evidence and building fabric. The meeting house was built due to the efforts of the Creed family, notably William and Eileen Creed, prominent Quakers in Heswall, who were also instrumental in founding the local Meeting. Aesthetic value:The meeting house has high significance for aesthetic values due to the quality of the design which demonstrates the advancing technologies and ideas of the time. Heswall meeting house was designed by architects Gerald Beech and Dewi-Prys Thomas who designed buildings notable for their freshness of design, meticulous and practical detailing. The meeting house provides a focal point and is a positive building of townscape merit along Telegraph Road. Key spaces and features survive within the meeting house, including the meeting room, staircase and kitchen. Despite loss and covering up of original fabric over the years in some areas, the form and aesthetics of the interiors can still be appreciated. Communal value: The Meeting house has high communal value as a building developed for the Quakers which has been in use since it was opened in 1963.
