Abstract:
A handsome late nineteenth-century design in seventeenth-century domestic style, untypical of traditional Quaker meeting house architecture. The building makes a positive contribution to the local conservation area. Overall, it is of medium significance. Evidential value: The interior of the building has not been inspected. There is little about the external character and appearance to suggest a meeting house, although there is much to denote its character as a late-nineteenth-century building of quality. It is of medium evidential value. Historical value: As a purpose-built late-nineteenth-century meeting house by regional architects of some consequence, the building is of medium historical value. Aesthetic value: The interior has not been inspected. The exterior is a handsome example of late Victorian architectural eclecticism, displaying a loosely seventeenth-century character, with good quality detailing. It makes a positive contribution to the conservation area, and is of high aesthetic value. Communal value: The building is currently unused. An approved scheme to convert the frontage building to affordable accommodation, with the meeting house function continuing and its facilities made more widely available, will give it high communal value.
