Friends' Meeting House. Dated 1689. Thin coursed rubble, ashlar

bearing date set within a tressure, stop-chamfered surround. Double-
chamfered mullion windows. 3-light window to left, 4-light to right.
Coped gables with kneelers. Central stack with one other added to

Interior: single vessel with king-post truss braced to ridge with single
angle struts. East end retains original oak-panelled dais with settles
and rostrum with finely-turned balusters forming Elders' Gallery. Oak-
panelled settle and one other to north wall.

Built in the year of the Act of Toleration, and as such an important and
