Abstract:
The meeting house was purpose-built in 1697 and has high heritage value, as an attractive building extended in the eighteenth century and set within a historic former burial ground. The building has associations with one of William Morris's students, Walter Crane a prolific children's illustrator and active in the Arts and Crafts movement. Evidential value: The building and site have medium evidential values primarily associated with the potential to yield information from the fabric about the buildings past use and construction. Historical value: The meeting house has high historical value. The meeting house purpose-built in 1697 has associations with early Quakerism in the Staffordshire Moorlands. The building was used as a William Morris Labour Church for a number of years until the early twentieth century and has connections with one of Morris's students Walter Crane. Aesthetic value: The building is a good example of vernacular architecture and with its burial ground it makes a positive contribution to the conservation area. The meeting house interior retains some historic panelling and joinery and overall it is of high aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house has variously been a Quaker meeting house and a William Morris Labour Church before returning to a place for Quaker worship. Today the building is used by local community groups as well as a place for worship. The meeting house has high communal value.
