Quaker Meeting House now private house. 1731 but dated 1733 over entrance. Painted roughcast walls, under graduated greenslate roof with painted roughcast chimney stack. Single storey, 3 bays. Off-centre gabled stone porch with plain boarded door in painted stone surround. Sash windows with glazing bars in painted stone surrounds, the centre window a larger casement; some surrounds retain their shutter hinge brackets. Interior: has its original panelled partition. See D. Butler, Quaker Meeting Houses of the Lake Counties, 1978, pp90-3, where he says the Meeting House was first used 3 February 1731 and suggests the porch was added 2 years later and hence the date over the entrance. Rear outshut is not of interest.
