The Roger Prichard Room is the result of a much needed extension to the Friends Meeting House.
The grade II* 17th century, traditional black & white Friends Meeting House at Almeley Wootton was beautiful yet impractical for regular use by groups. It was in need of full disabled access & toilet as well as a safe kitchen and larger communal space, it was decided to build an eco-friendly, sympathetic extension.
Plans were drawn and the local community consulted. With a good response from local community & Quaker groups, permissions were obtained from both planners and heritage authorities. With the architects’ estimated target of £230,000 ahead of us, we began the fundraising effort.
Our fundraising was a success and the Roger Prichard Room extension is now built and in use by both Quakers and the local community. It has full disabled access and toilet, a spacious well equipped kitchen and a large well lit communal room with splendid view overlooking the Black Mountains.
