Abstract:
A post-war rebuilding by Hubert Lidbetter of a bomb-damaged late-nineteenth century meeting house, placed behind a late eighteenth-century building in the heart of London's West End. Furnishings include a large collection of oak chairs made by Gordon Russell's Broadway Works. Overall it is of high significance. Evidential value: The meeting house was built in 1954-6, on the site of and incorporating fabric from its 1883 predecessor. It is of high evidential value. Historical value: The Westminster Meeting is one of the oldest in London, originating in 1655. This is the fourth purpose-built meeting house and the second on this site. It is of high historical value. Aesthetic value: The meeting house is somewhat hidden, being placed behind the frontage of an earlier building, and with a utilitarian elevation to the narrow passage at the side. Its contribution to the conservation area is therefore modest. However, internally it has some good finishes and furnishings. Overall, it is of medium aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house is widely used by local groups and businesses, and is of high communal value.
