Abstract:
Worcester Friends Meeting House has high heritage significance as a good example of a purpose-built meeting house erected in 1701. The most significant part of the building is the exterior, which is little altered, but the interior was remodelled in the 1980s and retains no in situ features. The building has an unspoilt burial ground and garden to the south, with a terrace of Georgian cottages built by the Quakers. It is an important community asset in Worcester. Evidential value: The meeting house has medium evidential value for its structural and external fabric but most of the interior is relatively modern and of no interest. The site has high archaeological potential as it was within medieval Worcester and has a burial ground. Historical value: The purpose-built meeting house illustrates the resources and confidence of Worcester Friends over time, and is associated with some local families such as the Derbys a long history of Quakerism in the town. Aesthetic value: The form and design of this handsome building is typical of early eighteenth century meeting houses, constructed in local brick with classical details and symmetrical elevations. The attractive burial ground adds to its aesthetic significance. The exterior and setting have high aesthetic value but the interior has less significance due to the 1980s alterations. Communal value: The Meeting House has high communal value as a place for Quaker worship, and is a popular community venue. The building has high communal value.
