Bournville Quaker Meeting House – Open Day
Bournville Quaker Meeting House, 65 Linden Road, Bournville Birmingham B30 1JT
The Quaker Meeting House was built in 1905 and enlarged in the 1920s and is unusually ornate. The Y-shaped building was designed by William Alexander Harvey, an influential architect on the Bournville estate.
A bust of George Cadbury by Frank Wood and installed in 1924 can be seen from the exterior that overlooks Bournville and the Village Green. Interred beneath are the ashes of George and his second wife Dame Elizabeth.
Especially for our Heritage Open Day there will be an exhibition of old photos of the Meeting House and a display board of Quaker testimonies. Quakers will be there to answer questions about the architecture and history of the building.
No booking required.
