Abstract:
The building has medium heritage significance as a meeting house purpose-built in 1929, by Quaker architect Ernest Hickman. The site has connections with the Cadbury family who donated the site for the present meeting house. Evidential value: This is a purpose-built structure dating from the beginning of the twentieth century, not on a site of a former building. It is of low evidential value. Historical value: The meeting house has medium historical value, as a relatively recent building typical of the small, plain, Neo-Georgian meeting houses of this date in the Birmingham area. It has associations with George Cadbury who donated a piece of land for the present meeting house. Church Road is also home to the former Friends meeting house and collectively provides a local context into Quakerism in the area. Aesthetic value: The meeting house is designed in neo-Georgian style following the trend set by Hubert Lidbetter for inter-war meeting house designs. The symmetrical frontage, sweeping eaves, attractive brick work and the large sash windows are all typical of this style. The building is well-designed and has medium aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house was built for Quaker use. However, it is also a community resource and has high communal value.
