Abstract:
A late eighteenth-century meeting house, with a little-altered main meeting room, set within a large burial ground and bounded by a contemporary boundary wall. Overall this is a meeting house of exceptional significance. Evidential value: The meeting house was built in 1785 and retains much of its original character and fabric, including hidden elements such as the king-post roof. Features such as the fixed seating in the elders' stand, the gallery shutters and the rows of headstones in the burial ground are evocative of Quaker traditions and values. The making good of the building following wartime bomb damage is itself part of its evidential value, which is exceptional. Historical value: This is one of the oldest meeting houses in Greater London, and has been in continuous use since 1785. The burial ground records over two centuries of Quaker witness. The site is of exceptional historical value. Aesthetic value: The meeting house has a plain Georgian character, with notable details and features such as the inscription over the doorway, fine brickwork detailing, the shutters and their hooks and, in the main meeting room, high quality fixed furnishings. It stands within a large and well-maintained burial ground, with mature planting, and is bounded by a contemporary brick boundary wall. The post-war additions have reduced the aesthetic value of the building, but not significantly, and it remains of exceptional aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house is widely used by local groups as well as Friends, and is of high communal value.
