Abstract:
The meeting house has exceptional significance as an early fourteenth-century religious building, adapted for a meeting house in the late seventeenth century. Its plain external appearance and interior, mostly dating from 1807, have high significance. Evidential value: There is substantial existing evidence of mediaeval occupation and much of the fabric is also mediaeval though the extent of this has not been assessed. The fitting out of 1807 survives essentially intact, though there have been some minor alterations. The building and site clearly have very high evidential value. Historical value: The building is of very high historical value as part of an Augustinian Friary for two centuries from c1340, and has been in use by the Quakers for over three centuries since the 1690s. There is ample physical evidence of both periods of occupation. Aesthetic value: The principal aesthetic value currently rests in the meeting room, which has retained many of its 1807 fittings and is a good example of a late-Georgian meeting house interior. The building has high aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house was at first intended for Quaker meetings, which were private gatherings. From the beginning of the nineteenth century it was also used by an Adult School. The building is now used both for worship and for community purposes and has high communal value.
