Abstract:
An early eighteenth-century meeting house and burial ground. The building was enlarged and altered by the addition of a dwelling in 1808. After the last war the building was further enlarged and the meeting room fittings removed. The building is of medium heritage significance. Evidential value : Much of the fabric of the original building of 1718 and the additions of 1808 is presumably incorporated in the present structure, which was restored and enlarged in the 1950s and 1970s. The building as a whole is of medium evidential value. Historical value : A reasonably well- preserved example of an early eighteenth century Quaker meeting house with an early eighteenth-century burial ground, all of high historical value. Aesthetic value : The exterior of the original building is attractive, but its original character has been altered by later additions. The 1950s renovation destroyed much of the original character of the interior. The building is of medium aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house has been used by Quakers since 1718, with a break between 1905 and 1947 and since that date has also been used by other local community groups. The building has high communal value.
