QUAKER MEETING HOUSE DEVIZES
We are pleased to be welcoming back old friends and new enquirers. We have removed the Covid precautions but ask our visitors to be aware that the virus has not gone away and to take care.
We regret that we will need to close the building to all visitors from Tuesday 9 to Friday 12 May for essential work. We ask people to avoid coming to the Meeting House during this time for health and safety reasons.

Devizes Quaker Meeting House offers a quiet and attractive location alongside the Kennet and Avon Canal and close to the town centre. The building comprises two main rooms and a well-equipped kitchen. We offer good facilities and a congenial and harmonious atmosphere with full access for people with disabilities. There is parking available for up to 12 cars. Quakers understand the need for peace and quiet. If you particularly need seclusion, you can be assured that your sessions will not be disrupted. We are now able to offer a Wi Fi link if needed.
This is an octagonal room facing the garden and canal with 50 upholstered chairs and circular table, privacy blinds and heavy duty curtains for black-out conditions. A hearing aid loop system and screen for presentations are also installed.
