SOCKBRIDGE AND TIRRIL, Tirril, Off B5320 (north side), Quaker Cottage

(Previously listed as located on the A592)

(formerly listed as Old Meeting House)



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, three 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), pp. 90-3, where he says the Meeting House was first used 3 February 1731 and suggests the porch was added two years later and hence the date over the entrance. Rear outshut is not of interest.
