Abstract:
The present building has medium heritage significance as a post-war rebuilding of a large and stately late seventeenth-century meeting house destroyed in the Second World War. It stands next to the Quaker burial ground for Norwich which has high heritage significance. Evidential Value: The building is essentially a rebuilding of the 1950s, but incorporating earlier fabric and standing on the site of the earlier meeting house. The attached burial ground has been in constant use since the seventeenth century. Together they have high evidential value. Historical Value: Although the present meeting house is of some historical interest as a reminder of its handsome seventeenth century predecessor, incorporating some re-used fabric, the chief historical importance of Gildencroft now lies in the burial ground which is of high historical value. Aesthetic Value: The meeting house is essentially a very modest 1950s building, of low aesthetic value. Communal Value: The former meeting house is now in permanent use as a Children's Centre, which gives it high communal value.
