BECKLEY AND STOWOOD BECKLEY
2/13 Bridge and retaining walls to
18/07/63 middle moat at Beckley Park
Bridge and retaining walls. C16 bridge; walls possibly earlier. Limestone rubble
and brickwork. Stone bridge has 2 plain semi-circular arches, masonry parapets
and a pitched stone pavement. Rubble wall extends around the inner side of the
moat from the line of the left gable wall of Beckley Park (q.v.), to the
southern corner of the moat where it returns north-eastwards for a few metres.
Right of the bridge are 5 raking buttresses, and the section immediately in
front of the house is raised with old brickwork. The house was built, probably
by Lord Williams of Thame, in c.1540 on the triple-moated site of an early C13
lodge built by Richard, Earl of Cornwall. Square gazebo at the angle of the moat
(C. Hussey, Country Life: Vol.LXV, p.406).
