Blackheath Quaker Meeting House 

The Meeting House was designed by Trevor Dannatt, who was awarded an OBE in the 2016 New Year Honours. It was completed in 1972 at a cost of £37,842. It won a Civic Trust award in 1973 and a Concrete Society commendation in 1974. Within the UK, this is believed to be the only Quaker Meeting House in the concrete Brutalist style.

An information sheet on the Meeting House, prepared for the 2013 London Open House Weekend, can be downloaded here (352 kB), and a printed version is available at the Meeting House.

In the report produced in 2015 for the Quaker Meeting Houses Heritage Project, the Meeting House is described as a ‘Brutalist jewel’ and of exceptional aesthetic value. The report can be downloaded here (600 kB). The project was jointly funded by Historic England and Britain Yearly Meeting, and the work was carried out by the Architectural History Practice.
