Details

TREDINGTON ARMSCOTE SP2444 8/210 Armscote Old Meeting House - II Meeting house, formerly barn. C17, converted c.1674. Squared, coursed limestone with ashlar quoins. C20 tile roof. One storey; 3-window range. To centre a double plank door with chamfered wood lintel. To left, centre left and right a late C17 wood cross casement with leaded lights. A lean-to, supported on chamfered wood pillars with stone bases, extends the length of the front. Further cross casement to left gable end. Interior: said to contain some benches. The Meeting House has connections with the Quaker George Fox who was an acquaintance of John Halford, the owner of Armscote Manor House where Fox was arrested. George Fox records in his Journal 'in 1673,.....we travelled into Worcestershire and went to John Halfords', at Armscote in Tredington parish, where we had a very large and precious meeting in his barn, the Lord's powerful presence being amongst us'. The barn is thought to have become a permanent meeting house soon after. (Southall, K.H., Our Quaker Heritage: Early Meeting Houses , p.61).
