GREAT BARDFIELD, BROOK STREET (north side), Friends' Meeting House

(Formerly listed under High Street)



Meeting house. Built 1806, extended late C20. Timber-framed on a brick plinth, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. Rectangular plan facing East. East elevation, 3 high original sashes of 16 lights, with crown glass. Double doors with shallow hood on scrolled brackets. Roof hipped. A mid C19 extension was demolished and replaced in the 1980s by a two-storey extension of rendered concrete blocks with a half-hipped roof towards the road and a flat-roofed link containing the entrance and toilets. The interior is divided into 2 areas by a full-height screen of pine, the lower panels removable, the upper panels sliding vertically on sash cords, to form one almost unobstructed area when required, all original. At the N end is a dais and elders' bench, of which only the back panels and pine balusters at either end survive; the terminal balusters of these are turned, the others plain. Pine dado, rising at the N. end. There are fixed wall benches on the other three sides.
