Briggflatts Meeting House

Briggflatts Meeting House is a Friends Meeting House of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), near Sedbergh in Northwest England, built in 1675.[1] It is the subject of Basil Bunting's poem “At Briggflatts meetinghouse” (1975).[2][3]

Most references use the spelling "Briggflatts", with two 'g's and two 't's. This is the spelling Bunting used for his poem. However, some sources give the spelling of the meeting house with a single 'g': "Brigflatts"[1] or with a single 't': "Briggflats".[4] A single source is not always consistent with spelling of this name. It is not clear which spelling(s) are correct.
