Pickering Friends Meeting House

Pickering Friends Meeting House

Pickering Friends Meeting House is a Grade 2 listed building dating from 1793. It has always been owned by the Society of Friends (Quakers) and the building stands near to Pickering's Norman castle on the North side of the town with a vantage point looking over the town and steam railway. It is heated via an air source heat pump which provides a comfortable all-year temperature. There are three rooms available for hire. There is a regular use of the building by a range and variety of community groups.The building also has a beautiful garden which is well-known for its sense of peace and stillness. Conditions of hire request no smoking on the premises and no alcohol in the building or garden. The building is open each day from 8.00am to 9.30pm, sometimes later depending on groups hiring the building. The simplicity, attractiveness and serenity of the venue makes it suitable for spiritual retreats or Quiet Days.

Events and information

Events and Information:


Great news: you can now add events and news into your venue’s profile.

We’ve listened to feedback and created a new box on your profile where you can promote or highlight new events and information.

This could be really useful if you don’t have a website for your venue and if you do have one, it’s somewhere else to spread the word.

We’ve kept the name of this box quite general, as we understand some of you wish to create your venue information and then don’t want to update it regularly.  That’s fine- just use it for text which won’t get out of date.

The opening hours box has been removed.  We needed to make space for the events box, so we decided that the opening hours one could be deleted.  Don’t worry, the information is still there when you log in, but the public can’t see it so you need to move it elsewhere.


What you need to do now: log in to the website and go to ‘venue details’.  In here you’ll find the text you had in the opening hours box: put it elsewhere, such as the new ‘events and information’ box, or at the end of the ‘introductory text’ box.  We’ve left it there for you at the moment, but will be removing this in June so it won’t confuse new account holders.


Secondly you need to put some text into the new ‘events and information’ box, otherwise it will appear empty on your profile.

These changes are now live on the website, so please log in soon.  If you have any questions, call Rural Action Yorkshire on 0845 313 0270 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 0845 313 0270 FREE  end_of_the_skype_highlighting.
