Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) on Liquorice Way. © Janet Gimber (2010). A previous home to the Friends' stood on Southgate. A plaque at the site explains that it was originally a burial ground (from 1664). A Meeting House was built here in 1697, and demolished in 1948, although oddly, another sign immediately beside the plaque gives dates for the Meeting House of 1697-1975. Both © Janet Gimber (2018).
