Abstract:
The meeting house consists of a substantial late Victorian suburban villa which was purchased by the Friends in 1955 and a new octagonal meeting room built behind the house in 1998/9. Taking both parts together, the meeting house building has medium heritage value. Evidential value: The original house is a fairly common type and the meeting room is wholly modern; the complex has low evidential value. Historical value: The meeting house has medium historical value as part of a planned late- Victorian suburb. Aesthetic value: The original house is of medium aesthetic value; the modern meeting room is a pleasing functional structure of medium aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house has been in use by the Quakers and local community groups since 1955. It has high communal value.
