Abstract:
The building has high significance as a small late Georgian meeting house on an earlier Quaker site, which was extended in the early twentieth century. The heritage value of the building now lies principally in the exterior, as internal alterations in 1983 resulted in the loss of the aesthetic and historical value of the interior. Evidential Value: The building stands on the site of an earlier meeting house which existed in 1697; the burial ground also came into use in the 1690s. The present mid-Georgian building has been altered and extended but there may be traces of early fabric both above and below ground. The building and site has some evidential value. Historical Value: As evidence of Quaker heritage in Wells extending over three hundred years, the meeting house has high historical value. Aesthetic Value: The older part of the building with its brick and flint walls has picturesque qualities, while the newer part is more institutional in character. The 1983 works eroded the character of the interior. The building has medium aesthetic value. Communal Value: During its history the building has served several functions, as a place of worship, as a mission hall and more recently as a meeting place for the wider local community. It has high communal value.
