Jordans Lane

Burial Ground Land brought by Thomas Ellwood, chosen for its seclusion and at the junction of four lanes.  Great names of Quaker history buried there, William Penn.  His wives and children.

Meeting House.  Stabling at the rear.  William Penn’s table from Stone Dean.  No meetings from 1799-1851 but restored after that.

Old Jordans Hostel. William Russell’s farm.  Bought as a Friends’ Hostel in 1911.  17th Farm hostel.  Mayflower Barn is one of the outbuildings, which may be made of timbers from Mayflower after she was broken up in 1624.
