Abstract:
The meeting house has exceptional heritage significance as a dignified 1820s building designed in the classical style with a handsomely-fitted interior, replacing a late seventeenth-century building on the same site. The meeting has strong associations with several leading social reformers of the early nineteenth century. Evidential value: The meeting house occupies a city centre site and it is likely that there are below-ground remains of earlier structures. The present building has been somewhat altered internally but the original arrangements are readily discernable. The building and site are of high evidential value. Historical Value: Norwich has always been an important Quaker centre. In the early part of the nineteenth century, when the present meeting house was built, Norfolk Quakers like Joseph Gurney, his sister Elizabeth Fry and their Anglican brother-in-law Thomas Buxton were nationally conspicuous social reformers. For both these reasons the Goat Lane Meeting House has exceptional historical value. Aesthetic Value: The meeting house has high aesthetic value as a typical example of early nineteenth-century nonconformist architecture by an established local architect. The meeting rooms and exterior are plain but handsome. Communal Value: Goat Lane meeting has been the centre of thriving Quaker community since the 1670s. In the first half of the nineteenth century it was associated with evangelising social reform, in the second half of the century with adult education and mission work. It is of high communal value as a building used both for worship and for a wide variety of community purposes.
