Quakers in Saffron Walden
We have a long history in Saffron Walden. Local Quakers funded the Library, two schools, a college, the hospital, the old railway line, Bridge End Gardens and the drinking fountain in the square.
Individually, Quakers come from many walks of life and are also often involved with other local and national activist groups.
Most importantly Quakers hope to gain the strength to live adventurously and with integrity.
