Abstract:
Shrewsbury meeting house has medium heritage significance as an attractive example of a former mission hall, built in 1930 to serve a new suburb. Evidential value: The meeting house building has low significance for evidential value, and the site, once part of a villa garden, is considered to have low archaeological potential. Historical value:The building has medium historical significance, associated with an Anglican church mission established in 1930 to serve the inter-war Coton Hill estate. Quakers have a long history in Shrewsbury, associated with a site on St John's Hill, rather than this site. Aesthetic value: The building and site have medium aesthetic value; the former mission hall is an attractive example of inter-war domestic revival design and the hedged garden contains some specimen trees. Communal value:The meeting house has high communal significance as a building used for worship by the local meeting, and as a popular venue for a range of community activities. It also has some association with the former Anglican mission hall.
