Friends Meeting House, Darlington


The Friends Meeting House is located on Skinnergate in Darlington. The Quakers bought a house and land at Skinnergate in 1678, and converted it into a meeting house. In the 1760s this was replaced by a purpose-built meeting hose. Then in c.1839, a two-storey reception range was added to it. In 1846 the meeting house was replaced by the present building, retaining the 1839 front-range.[1] Behind the Meeting House lies a large Quaker burial ground. Joseph Pease (1772 - 1846), a prominent Quaker and Abolitionist, is amongst those burried here. The meeting house is Grade II* listed on the National Heritage list for England.
