Abstract:
Statement of Significance: As a meeting house built in 1995, the building has low heritage significance for historical and evidential values, but it has high communal value as a well-used community resource in Keswick and the focus of an active Quaker community. The aesthetic character of the building reflects the local vernacular. Evidential value: A modern building constructed on a green field site, the building and the site have low evidential value. Historical value: The present building replaced a meeting house in the town centre used for most of the twentieth century, and is the latest in a sequence of meeting houses in the Keswick area, where Quakers first met in the mid seventeenth century. The present building and site has low historical value. Aesthetic value: The meeting house is typical of buildings constructed in the Lake District National Park designed to reflect local vernacular traditions, and it fits well into the local street scene. As a modern building it has no historic features, and its aesthetic heritage value is low. Communal value:The meeting house was purpose-built for Quaker and community use and embodies Quaker values of simplicity, sustainability, welcome and community service. These social values give the building high communal value.
