Abstract:
The meeting house has overall high heritage significance as a nineteenth century meeting house, retaining some internal fittings, built on the site of an earlier meeting house and set in an attractive burial ground. Evidential value: The meeting house was built in 1864, replacing an earlier building on site, a late seventeenth century meeting house. The burials in the attached burial ground are largely undisturbed. The site has high evidential value. Historical value: This has been a site of Quaker worship since the 1670s. The present meeting house retains much of its historic layout and a number of original or early features, including the elders' stand and dado panelling. The simple headstones of the burial ground remain. The meeting house and burial ground have high historical value. Aesthetic value: In keeping with Quaker principles, the meeting house is a plain, but attractive building, and retains a good set of fitted benches and panelling. The building is part of the distinctive character of Sibford Gower making use of local materials in a vernacular style. The building and burial ground has high aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house was built for and remains in primarily Quaker use. It makes a positive contribution to the local conservation area, and as such is appreciated by local people who may not be users of the building. The building and burial ground embody Quaker values of simplicity. The meeting house has high communal value.
