  • Description

    Built 1698; sold 1923 this is now a dwelling. Carol Hickson who now owns the house writes 24 November 2013, "Originally this building belonged to my grandmothers half sister who left it to her.It was going to be condemned so in 1970 we had it done up & various people have rented it since.The most recent ones have moved out a couple of weeks ago.The graveyard is at the back of the bungalow & my mother (who is 93) informed me that her parents went to the last funeral there which she thinks would be in 1918.I do have a list of the last burials there (somewhere in the house !)" The meeting house closed for worship in 1849. Two years later repairs were carried out so that it could be let as a dwelling, although the tenant had to allow one room to be used by Carlisle Friends should (s)he be given a day’s notice.
