Farfield Quaker Meeting House Recieves Blue Plaque Accreditation

Farfield Quaker Meeting House was built in 1689, immediately following The 1689 Act of Toleration which allowed other forms of non-anglican worship to take place in Britain for the first time. This makes Farfield Meeting House one of the oldest Quaker meeting houses and indeed one of the very first legal non-conformist religious buildings in the country.

This historical significance was recognised on Saturday 2nd June when a Blue Plaque was unveiled on the outer boundary wall of the Farfield Quaker Meeting House, now this link to Britain’s religiously intolerant past is on full display to all visitors to Farfield. A special thank you to the Addingham Civic Society for suggesting the installation of a Blue Plaque and for making it happen.
