Our Meeting House: Rawdon Meeting House was built in 1697 and is a listed building of Special Architectural and Historic Interest.
Our community: Rawdon continues to be a thriving Quaker Meeting. The Meeting House is used by many groups, Quaker and non Quaker, including music groups and performers, as the room has a good upright piano and a good acoustic. From 1992 until the recent pandemic, Rawdon was host to a popular series of concerts in aid of Amnesty International, for which thousands of pounds were raised.
