Abstract:
The meeting house has high heritage value as a former public house with parts dating to the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Evidential value: The building consists of several parts, of which the oldest appears to date from the seventeenth century. The fabric of the building may reveal more about its evolution, and the site has high archaeological potential as Post Street has Roman origins. The building and site have high evidential value. Historical value: Relatively little is known about the history of the building before its conversion for use as a meeting house. It has historical value for its former use (from at least c.1886) as a public house, and for its later association with the Quakers. The building has high historical value, mainly due to its illustrative value. Aesthetic value: The building is a picturesque and accretive building in the local vernacular tradition, with Georgian-style symmetrical sash windows. The older part of the wing is more irregular in its proportions and elevations which lend it picturesqueness. Overall, the building has high aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house building has high communal significance as a former public house (until the late 1960s), and now as a Quaker meeting house, which is also partly used by local community groups and a nursery.
