Abstract:
The meeting house is a modest structure and is only a fragment of a much larger complex of late Victorian buildings, now lost. It stands on the edge of, what was between 1661 and its closure in 1855, the principal Quaker burial grounds in London. For that reason, the site as a whole must be considered to be of high heritage significance. Evidential value: The present meeting house is the former caretaker's cottage or manager's house of the lost Memorial Hall and Coffee Tavern of the 1880s and is of medium evidential value. The burial ground is of high evidential value Historical value: The meeting house is of medium historical value as the fragment of a much larger complex, but the burial ground is of exceptional historical value as one of the principal London Quaker burial grounds and as the last resting place of George Fox. Aesthetic value: Although only a fragment of the original building, the meeting house is of medium aesthetic value as an example of the institutional Queen Anne style popular in the late nineteenth century. Communal value: The meeting house has been in use for its present purpose since the 1950s and is well used by community groups. It has high communal value.
