Abstract:
The Blue Idol Meeting House is a farmhouse of c.1580 which was acquired by a group of Quakers including William Penn in the early 169os. It was extended in 1934-5 by Hubert Lidbetter. The site includes a small attached burial ground and a medieval hovel barn. The meeting house is of exceptional significance. Evidential value: As a sixteenth-century building which retains original fabric and historic fittings, the meeting house has exceptional evidential value. Historical value: The meeting house has strong associations with the origins of Quakerism and in particular with William Penn, Quaker leader and founder of Pennsylvania. It has exceptional historical value. Aesthetic value: The older part of the building is a timber-framed building whose pattern and patina of age lends the meeting house high aesthetic value. The 1930s extension in a vernacular idiom has perhaps slightly less aesthetic value. Communal value: The building has exceptional communal value as one of the best-known Quaker meeting house and as a focus for Quakerism and the local community. It has exceptional communal value.
