Description

The site has been in Quaker ownership since 1674 and overall has high heritage value. The present building has medium heritage significance, as a meeting house built in the early 1980s replacing an earlier building of 1817, located to the rear of a late nineteenth century extension facing Clifford Street. The building was further extended in 2013-2015 with a contemporary extension. The former women's meeting room dating from the 1884 extension, retains historic fabric and fittings, whilst the basement includes surviving historic fabric from a former Friary, both adding to the high significance of the building for aesthetic and historical value. The site as a whole has high archaeological potential.
