Simple rectangular plan on east-west axis (at right-angles to lane) with integral 1-bay cottage at west end and 2-storey porch next to junction with this. EXTERIOR: the cottage is 2 low storeys and the meeting house is one storey to the same height, the whole range 1:1:3 windows, with a plinth to the main range. The cottage has one 3-light mullioned window on each floor, and a short square gable chimney. The porch is 2-storeyed and gabled, has a round-headed outer doorway with chamfered surround, a square-headed inner doorway with a heavy pegged oak door and simple wrought-iron furnishings. Over the outer doorway there is a C20 replica of an original datestone with raised lettering "Anno / Do / 1675" over a 5-pointed star, and at 1st floor a round-headed 1-light window with chamfered surround and hollow spandrels. The main range has two 3-light windows at mid level, both with chamfered mullions and straight stone-slate drip courses over them. To the right 2 similar windows vertically-aligned, the upper (lighting the gallery) without a drip-course. INTERIOR: muntin-and-rail panelling to walls, with plain benches; raised bench against south wall with simple panelled front and rail with ball finials to stair top. Gallery to north side and both ends (added 1711) supported by wooden columns, protected by wooden turned-baluster railings and approached by a wide wooden staircase (opposite the door) at the foot of which wooden gates form an enclosure for sheepdogs; west end partitioned with wooden panelling on both levels to form Warden's cottage. HISTORICAL NOTE: third oldest Friend's Meeting House.
