Abstract:
The meeting house building has high heritage significance as a late seventeenth or early eighteenth-century building which was an inn for most of its life, acquired by the Quakers in 1986 and adapted for meetings. Evidential value: The building is known to be partly constructed of reclaimed mediaeval materials, perhaps from the nearby Carmelite Priory, and may stand on the site of earlier medieval structures on what was once a main thoroughfare. The building retains some (nineteenth century) decorative features from its time as a pub. It is of high evidential value. Historical value: The building is of medium historical value as an old structure, known to have been an inn since at least the 1730s. Its use as a meeting house is recent and this aspect has low historical value. Aesthetic value: The rendered exterior of the building is characteristic of historic buildings in the area and it forms part of an attractive group on the west side of Bridge Street. It is of high aesthetic value. Communal value: As a place of public refreshment for nearly three hundred years, and now as a place of worship also offering space for community activities the building has high communal value.
