27. Wall Panel At Horfield Meeting House

To celebrate the centenary of Horfield Quakers’ Meeting House, in 2009 a special tiled wall panel was added.

The panel is on the side of the wall that faces the street, so is visible to everyone who passes it walking up or down Gloucester Road, Bristol, England.

Made up of hand-made tiles spelling out the  Quaker testimonies of peace, equality, simplicity and truth, the panel also features pictures of animals and nature.

Quakers of all ages got together to design and make the tiles, with some of them being made by children.

As well as the new panel, the peace garden in the building’s courtyard has seen drab grey slabs replaced with mosaics and plants.
