Abstract:
The purpose-built late nineteenth century meeting house has special interest for the character and appearance of the building and its grounds in the conservation area, for its historical connections with dissenting Quaker meetings, and for its largely intact furnishings. The building and site has high heritage significance. Evidential value: The building incorporates evidence for historic changes, and is testament to the resources of Fritchley Quakers. Evidential value is relatively low. Historical value: The meeting house has special historical interest as the premises of a dissenting meeting which did not become part of the Quaker mainstream until the 1960s, after a century of independence. It had links with similar dissenting meetings in the UK and in Canada. The Quaker community was very prominent in the village of Fritchley, playing an important part in the nineteenth and twentieth century history of the place. There is high historical value. Aesthetic value: The meeting house is of relatively low key appearance, although it utilises brick as a building material in an area where stone was more usual. The interior, which retains the original partitions and furnishings, including loose furnishings, has high aesthetic value. Communal value: The meeting house acts as a focus for the activities of local Friends and although there is relatively little community use of the building, it has communal value as part of the local scene, but is of relatively low communal value overall.
