    Visitor Info:

    The Quaker Meeting House at Brigflatts is the oldest in northern England.  Constructed in 1675, the building is considered as one of England's vernacular gems.  George Fox (1624-1691), was the founder of the Quaker movement or Society of Friends.  At the great Hiring Fair in 1652, Fox preached in the churchyard of Sedbergh Parish Church and again at nearby Firbank Fell, now known as Fox's Pulpit.  He subsequently organised a permanent Quaker meeting at Brigflatts.  The land for the Meeting House was purchased for ten shillings (50p) and the building constructed by the Quaker friends in the plain and undecorated style of local farmhouses of that period.  The oad outer door, which still survives in place today, was added in 1706.  The Burial Ground nearby (very near Brigflatts Meeting House), is still in use and contains the remains of over 700 worshippers, including the poet Basil Bunting, one of whose poems is entitled 'Brigflatts'.  Parking is very limited.  Visitors are asked to park on the layby on the A683 opposite to the short, and narrow lane, signposted to Brigflatts.

    This Chapel is featured in the "Railways and Religion" leaflet produced by Churches Trust for Cumbria.
