Abstract:
Statement of Significance:The inter-war meeting house is of medium heritage significance. The building has an attractive appearance characterised by its simple domestic architectural style, designed by Hubert Castle. The design reflects the character of the surrounding Wythenshawe Estate, developed from 1931 as a satellite suburb for Manchester, designed by Barry Parker. Evidential value: South Manchester meeting house has an overall low level of significance for evidential value, as a building constructed in one phase. The Greater Manchester Historic Environment Record has not identified the site as having archaeological potential. Historical value: The inter-war meeting house is within Wythenshawe, laid out by Barry Parker as a planned garden city suburb in south Manchester. The building has medium historic significance as part of this overall development. Aesthetic value: The building is designed in a simple domestic revival style with a mansard roof. The form and detailing of the building complements the design character of Wythenshawe estate; the building has medium aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house has high communal value as a building in use by the Quakers since 1939. The building provides a local community focus and its facilities are used by local and social groups with diverse interests.
