Unitarian Meeting House

As one of Ipswich’s most important historic structures, this Grade I listed building is one of the finest surviving Dissenters' Meeting Houses in the country. 

Built in 1699 and was opened in 1700 by John Fairfax, much of The House's original structure and character remains intact. 

The interior has many impressive and original features including the spy hole used to keep watch for attackers’ or hostile officials and a richly carved and decorated high pulpit surrounded by box pews and a large three-sided gallery.

Ipswich Unitarian Meeting House retains its original aspect and character more or less intact. This adds to its rarity for few such Meeting Houses have survived, and fewer still without drastic alteration. The rarity is heightened still further by its timber-frame construction. It is believed to be the only remaining example of a purpose-built timber-framed Dissenting Meeting House of its period
