Abstract:
The building has medium heritage significance as a typical example of a post-war meeting house designed in the domestic tradition by the eminent Quaker architect Hubert Lidbetter and his son. Evidential value: The meeting house and the site have low evidential value as a modern building constructed in 1957, extended in 1959-60. The site was formerly part of the site of Brook Farm, dating back to at least the 1870s and may have related archaeological potential. Historical value: The meeting house has medium historical value, as a relatively recent building typical of the small, plain, domestic-style meeting houses built by Hubert Lidbetter (and his son) in the post-war years. It has strong associative value with the architects. Aesthetic value: The meeting house is modest and small-scale and like most Quaker meeting houses, is a building of simplicity. Decoration is reduced to lettering, brickwork and internal arches. The building is well-designed and in its use of materials typical for the period. It has medium aesthetic value. 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 value, all of which lend it high communal value.
