Abstract:
A late eighteenth-century meeting house, extended in the early nineteenth and late twentieth centuries, prominently located in the Historic Rochester Conservation Area and occupying a site of high archaeological potential. The building retains much of its external character but is internally altered. A former burial ground adjoining is now a car park. Overall, the meeting house is of high significance. Evidential value: The building has been altered and enlarged at various stages, and each phase reflects developments in the use of the building. Although the interior has been much altered, it retains elements which are characteristic of historic meeting houses. The building's design, construction, detailing and fitting out are of high evidential value. Historical value: A meeting house since the late eighteenth century, occupying a site in Quaker use since the 1670s, lying within the historic core of the city and close to the line of the Roman wall, the building and site are of high historical value. Aesthetic value: The exterior, with its tile roofs, historic brickwork and joinery and garden setting are of high aesthetic value, and make an important contribution to the local townscape. The interior is altered and although still displaying some of the character of a historic meeting house is of medium aesthetic value. 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.
