Some Notes on the Building The original building was designed by architects Hicks and Charlewood in 1898 as a men's club in the Queen Anne style. In 1922 the building was extended and was opened as a Masonic Lodge in 1925. The conversion to the new Quaker Meeting House for Newcastle upon Tyne has been carried out by Newcastle architects Napper and contractors Koru, and has included removal of the 1920's extensions to the rear of the building.

The adapted and renovated building meets the requirements of the Newcastle Quakers for a place of worship and for social and community activities within a building designed to have low environmental impact. The restoration makes a significant contribution to the historic suburban character of West Avenue within Gosforth Conservation Area.
