Trustees for West Wiltshire and East Somerset Area Meeting are pleased to let Friends know that the sale of Bath Meeting House will be launched by the end of January 2020.
The original decision to sell the building was taken in 2018, as the Meeting House is larger than Bath Friends need for their own purposes. Since April 2019 Quakers in Bath have been meeting in rooms at Bath Central United Reformed Church which are more suited to the Meeting’s everyday needs.
The Meeting House is being marketed for sale by local estate agents Carter Jonas (01225 747260). Bath Friends will be writing a fuller report of the processes in selling the Meeting House for publication in the Friend in summer 2020, which will address the many issues encountered and lessons learned during this year of waiting.
This distinguished piece of architecture could be yours. We found it was not ideally suited to Bath Quakers’ needs.
