We love groups visiting Quaker Tapestry! Your ‘red carpet’ welcome awaits you…

First of all, groups visiting Quaker Tapestry will receive a warm welcome. Inside our Grade II* Listed Georgian Meeting House you will be treated to a short introductory talk, by one of our volunteer guides, about how the Quaker Tapestry project began.

The Georgian Meeting House has some unusual architectural features.  Such as the large wooded screens that divide the two ground floor meeting rooms. There has been a Quaker Meeting House on the site since 1688. Frances Webster a well-known architect built the house in 1816.
