Abstract:
The meeting house has exceptional heritage value as a fine example of a Quaker meeting house and one of the earliest surviving non-conformist buildings in Stafford, built in 1730. The purpose-built meeting house has a little altered interior which retains its historic gallery and fittings. Evidential value: The building and site has medium evidential value as the site of a Quaker burial ground in use since the late seventeenth century. Historical value: The meeting house has exceptional historical significance. Quakerism has a long history in Stafford and the meeting house has strong associations with the Babb family who were key drivers in the development of Quakerism in the area. The meeting house retains its historic layout, as well as features dating from the eighteenth century, including the gallery and seating. It is considered to be the best surviving example in Staffordshire. Aesthetic value: The form and design of the building is typical of early eighteenth century vernacular meeting houses. The exterior, interior spaces and the simplicity of the historic fittings have exceptional aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house has high communal value. It has been in use by Quakers since 1730 and today it is also used by local community groups.
