Quakers have been active in Colchester for more than three centuries. Their present home, built in 1803 for John Constable’s lawyer, was converted by the Society of Friends in 1974 with accommodation for resident wardens. It provides not only a place for worship to today’s Quakers and their children, but serves the local community in the broadest sense by providing a base for about a hundred different groups. It is hired out at reasonable rates throughout the week.
