Abstract:
The meeting house has medium heritage significance as an inter-war suburban house which was converted for use as a meeting house. Evidential value: The meeting house and its site have low evidential value as an inter-war suburban house (originally known as the Red House) built in the former grounds of the mid-nineteenth-century South Lodge, and converted to meeting house use in 1957-8. Historical value: Little is known about the early history of the Red House, its architect and occupiers. As a typical suburban house which was converted to meeting house use it has low historical value. Aesthetic value: The meeting house is a well-designed building, whose elevations combine Arts and Crafts elements with neo-Georgian sash windows. The interiors retain no historic features and the medium aesthetic value resides chiefly in the external elevations. Communal value: The building's primary use is as a Quaker meeting house but is also rented out to local community groups. Due to these uses, the building has symbolic, social and spiritual significance, all of which lend it high communal value.
