About this church
It is a simple brick building with a hipped tiled roof, restored after a fire in 2005.
The interior is plain and unassuming with simple panelling to the lower walls, raised a little higher on the left hand end wall to mark the elders' seats. There is a fixed wall bench all around the room, and open backed benches. At the other end of the room both the ground and first floor rooms are separated from the main room by screens with shutters.
The men, women and children usually met in three separate rooms but by opening the shutters the three spaces could be united.
William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania, returned to England and is buried in a marked grave in front of the meeting house.
