Abstract:
The purpose-built meeting house is typical of 1970s design. The architecture is modest, but the building provides flexible, well-lit and spacious rooms, creating comfortable and attractive surroundings for worship and community use. It is set in attractive gardens on the east edge of Bolton town centre, and has overall low heritage significance. Evidential value: The building is constructed of materials and to a plan very typical of the third quarter of the twentieth century. It has been altered in the twenty-first century and is considered to have low evidential value. Historical value: Friends have had a presence in Bolton since the late seventeenth century. The present building is evidence for the resources of Bolton Friends towards the latter part of the twentieth century. The building and site have low historical significance. Aesthetic value: This is a typical design for a building of the date and it embodies attractive qualities of good natural light, views of the garden and a relaxed atmosphere. It is considered to have medium aesthetic significance. Communal value: The meeting house is situated near the centre of Bolton and is very well used by local groups. It stands as witness to an active Quaker presence and engagement with the local community, with high communal value.
