George Shaw of Bickerstaffe first established this handsome stone built house of 1679 as a place of Quaker worship. It is the oldest building in St Helen's, and forms part of the town's George Street Conservation Area.

A path bordered by seasonal flowers and plants leads to the main entrance door, above this is a sundial bearing the date 1753. Curiously, in the garden visitors can see a massive glacial boulder presumed to have been left by the last ice age of the Lake District.

This is a lovely old building with a distinctly timeless charm!
