3/89 Former Quaker Meeting House behind Nos.87 and 9.12.55 89 High Street (formerly listed as part of No 87 and No 89 (Old Friends Meeting House ))

- II

Former Quaker Meeting House, now a store. Circa 1772 with C19 alterations. Mainly timber-framed and pebble-dashed. Slated roof (the west face re- finished in asbestos sheeting). A gable chimney of gault brick. Mainly small-pane sashes, perhaps renewed early C19. A pair of entrance doors each having 2 fielded panels, with an open porch, also original, but altered and roofed in corrugated iron; a central post in the form of a pilaster. The meeting room is little-altered, with horizontal beaded boarding and a deep loft; the balustrading was renewed C20 but a part of the staircase remains. The room beneath has a little original joinery including a screen with hatchways to the main room. The approach to the Meeting House is lined by C18 and C19 graves of the Alexander and Maw families; the headstones now rest against adjacent outbuildings. A History of Needham Market: Hugh Pagett, C.B.E.,1984.
