Footnote: The Meeting House takes its name from Meeting House Lane on which it sits, midway between the A6 and Lancaster station. The thoroughfare in turn borrows that title from a narby Quaker Friends Meeting House that was first created in the city in 1677.
The founder of the Society of Friends, or Quakers, was George Fox and on several occasions he addressed local people from the grounds of Lancaster’s Priory Church. His non-conformist views earned him two years imprisonment, during the 1660s, in the nearby Lancaster Castle.
