Abstract:
Bewdley meeting house is an interesting example of a brick-built vernacular building built as a meeting house 1691-1706. It has high significance for the historic building, fittings and the associated burial ground. Evidential value: The meeting house and burial ground are considered to have medium archaeological potential and evidential value, relating to the fabric of the building and the archaeology of the site and burial ground. Historical value: The meeting house has historic value for its links to Bewdley's prosperous past as a trading port on the river Severn, and for its association with a some notable Quakers including the Sturge and Tangye families. The building is a good example of a meeting house built at end of the seventeenth century on a discreet site, and the whole site has high historic value. Aesthetic value: The meeting house is a good example of local vernacular architecture, built in the brick tradition of the area, retaining some historic internal joinery. The burial ground and edge of town setting contribute to its high aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house is used by the Quaker community and for some community activities and has potential for wider use. Communal value is medium.
