Friends' Meeting House

Swarthmoor Friends' Meeting House, is located on Meeting House Lane in the Croftlands area of Ulverston, about half a mile east of the village of Swarthmoor. The Quaker meeting house is dated 1688, with alterations in the 19th century. George Fox bought the land (at that time part of Swarthmoor Estate) in 1687 from the daughters of Judge Fell, of Swathmoor Hall, and passed it on to the Friends for the purpose of building the meeting house. The building is dated 1688 and was registered as a place of worship in 1689. The building is Grade II* listed on the National Heritage List for England.
