(formerly listed as house
adjoining Friends' Meeting
TQ 23 NE 3/48 21.6.48
Meeting House Cottage is a timber-framed 3 bay open hall house of circa 1475. It is
of 2 storeys, the west side having a brick-faced lower storey and tile-hung upper
storey. South end faced in brick in C18. Old tiled roof hipped at south end and at
north end hipped and carried down in long sweep over outshot. Windows are leaded
casements. The interior has 2 crown posts and a C16 inserted ceiling. On 24 June 1674
the local blacksmith Robert Robinson who lived in the house, and was a Quaker conveyed
the house, shop, garden, orchard and about 4 acres of land to a group of Friends for the
sum of £60, in trust for the meeting. This resulted in the adjoining Friends Meeting
House. Meeting House Cottage is now the warden's cottage for the Meeting House.
