Former Friend's Meeting House, Scotby


There was a Friend's Meeting House (Quakers) in Scotby, built in 1718, which for a time, hosted the Carlisle Monthly Meeting. It has not been used as a meeting house since 1913 and has since been converted to residential use. There is a small Quaker burial ground at the south of the building, which has unusual oval grave markers (about 19), dating between 1830 and 1896. The Quakers also had another burial ground nearby, on White Hill, off Broomfallen Road. The former Meeting House is Grade II listing on the National Heritage List for England.
