“A haven of calm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

This is the oldest Meeting House in the north of England and the second oldest in the entire country. It was built as a result of George Fox's visit to the area in 1652. The interior woodwork is well worth seeking out and the setting if the building is peaceful and with a charming garden. Fox's Pulpit, where the founder preached, is at Firbank, not many miles away.

“Quaker meeting house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

One of the oldest meeting houses. An open door gives access to refreshments and a loo for anyone passing by. An almost unique experience.

“A little treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Attended a discussion group during Quaker week. Fascinating little place well worth a stop. Also worth attending a meeting for worship to see the building being used for the purpose for which it was intended.

“Awe inspiring atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

This unique ancient building has a simplicity about it that gets to your soul. The walls tell their story. The space is full of textures, colours and atmosphere that are serene and informing. A wonderful place to reflect and renew.
