Abstract:
The meeting house has high heritage value as a former Reading Room built in 1883 which was converted for use as a meeting house in the late 1920s. The Victorian building retains most of its external architectural detailing making a positive contribution to the street scene. Evidential value: This is a purpose-built structure, built on former agriculture land and is of low evidential value. Historical value: The meeting house has high historical significance in terms of the local context, its former use as a Reading Room for the hamlet of Hall Green, use by the Baptists and the suburban growth of Hall Green. It reflects the history of local Quakers from the beginning of the twentieth century. The building has strong associations with the Severne families who were prominent in the hamlet. Aesthetic value: The meeting house has a high aesthetic value, it is an attractive late Victorian building which retains much of its elegant exterior detail. The interior of the meeting room includes significant features such as the stained glass leaded windows and exposed roof. The building makes a positive contribution to the townscape. Communal value: The meeting house was originally built to serve the local community as a Reading Room, a venue for the Baptists and remained in community use following the purchase by the Quakers in 1903. It is still used by local community groups today and has high communal value.
