Friends Meeting House, Moorhouse


A former Friends Meeting House (Quakers) is located in Moorhouse. The meeting house was built 1733, replacing an earlier meeting house of 1681. The Meeting closed in 1913 and the building was then used as a Methodist church until 1967. It was then sold, and for a time used as a barn, before being converted to a dwelling. The former Friends Meeting House is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England. The boundary wall at the north of the house, also built in the mid 18th century, is also Grade II listed. There is an associated Quaker Burial Ground a short distance to the north.
