Abstract:
Built in 1670, Hertford is the earliest purpose-built Quaker meeting house still standing, and is still in Quaker use. There have been some alterations to the fabric over the last 350 years but the building retains much of its original character, both externally and internally. It is of exceptional heritage significance. Evidential value: The original fabric has suffered a number of alterations to suit changing requirements, many of which are documented. This makes the building of high evidential value. Historical value: As the earliest surviving meeting house in the world, the building is clearly of exceptional historical value. Aesthetic value: The exterior of the building is attractive and the interior still preserves much of its early character. The building is of high aesthetic value. Communal value: The building, or at least the Quaker Room (formerly the Women's Meeting Room - built in 1738) is well-used by the wider community and the site is of high communal value.
