Abstract:
The meeting house at Maldon has high heritage significance as an early nineteenth-century building with original furnishings and a burial ground. Evidential value: The fabric of the meeting house and the burials on the site have the potential to yield evidence about the building's construction and past Quaker activity. The building and the site have medium evidential value. Historical value: The meeting house is a late Georgian building and one of the oldest buildings in Butt Lane. It retains most of its historic layout, as well as a number of Georgian benches. The meeting house is associated with Eric Baker, one of the founders of Amnesty International, who is buried at Maldon. The meeting house and burial ground have high historical value, both illustrative and associative. Aesthetic value: The meeting house is a good example of late Georgian architecture, although like most meeting houses, the building is fairly plain. The simple form of the original building has been slightly diminished by incremental extensions on either side. The setting of the well-maintained historic burial ground, adds to the aesthetic value of the building and site. Overall, the meeting house and burial ground have high aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house and site have high communal value as a building and burial ground developed for the Quakers. It is now also in community use, and a familiar landmark for local residents and visitors. The building and burial ground symbolise Quaker values, such as the testimony of simplicity.
