• Description

    Built 1823. Closed 1907. This is a rare type of bank barn found only in Westmorland and in those parts of the USA to which Westmorland Friends emigrated. The meeting room was built by erecting a wall across one end of the upper floor and lighting it with a single window. The furniture consists of simple backless benches. This is unique in that it is the only example of a meeting room of this kind still standing in Britain.
