Chatteris Quaker house: 'You wouldn't demolish a church'
Despite respecting the wishes of those for demolition of the Quakers Meeting House in Chatteris, I don’t see St Peter’s church, or any other old chapels, up for demolition around town – like the empty derelict one in London Road that formerly housed a lighting firm, or the one in Park Street that is now a vet’s.
As regards the building being ugly (Citizen, February 5) – that means simple, plain and austere, which conforms to their beliefs, as Quakers are more humble in nature and virtue.
The building is not derelict as it still has a roof and windows in it. It is merely empty and vacated. Presumably the white walls are a later addition, or stand for purity.
