Abstract:
An early seventeenth-century timber-framed house, acquired as a Meeting House later in the same century and altered and extended in the eighteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The meeting house and attached former burial ground are of high heritage significance. Evidential value: The original timber framed house has been altered and enlarged at various stages, and each phase reflects developments in the use of the building. Its construction, detailing and fitting out are of high evidential (and archaeological) value. The attached burial ground is also of high value, despite the lack of marked burials. Historical value: As a meeting house in use (with one interruption) since the late seventeenth century, occupying a building in part of even earlier date, with an attached burial ground in use from perhaps as early as 1660, the building and site are of high historical value. Aesthetic value: The tile roof, eighteenth-century brickwork and joinery (including external shutters), and the atmospheric interior fitted out with dado panelling and fixed seating, are all of high aesthetic value. This is enhanced by the setting of the old boundary walls and large meadow/former burial ground, with mature and specimen trees. The building sits well in the local townscape, next door to the former workhouse, a flint-faced neo-Elizabethan design of 1838. Communal value: The building and site are of high communal value for their longstanding Quaker witness, for their contribution to the local townscape, and for the facilities they offer.
