Type and Period (2)
The building was adapted to be used as a Friends meeting house during the 1930s as a replacement for a meeting house built in Ipswich in 1700. It was previously a house prior to its conversion. The house is a red brick classical villa of c.1860. The meeting room, situated to the rear of the property was added c.1935. The only surviving feature from the original meeting house is a bench that appears to have been moved to the new building. This meeting house does not have an attached burial ground unlike other examples from Suffolk as the burial ground was situated in a separate cemetery (S1).
For the now demolished former Friends meeting house see IPS 827.
