The Friends Meeting House is two doors away from Peckover House. It was largely funded by the Peckovers in the 1800's. The garden at the rear of the house is now a garden of remembrance with the most notable being Jane Stewart one of the daughters of James II

The story of 'Princess Jane' ('natural' daughter of James II) was really interesting and her beautifully tended grave in the stunning little garden was wonderful to see with its very old box hedge inscription.

This Meeting House on the North Brink was built by Algernon Peckover. Behind it is the small graveyard where members of the Peckover family are buried. Another grave is that of Jane Stuart (an illegitimate daughter of James II) who to lived in Wisbech and died in 1742, aged 88. The house is a nice looking addition to the Brink.
