Beckingham and its History

The history is an important aspect to the village. Many years ago Beckingham was a typical medieval village dating back to Roman times! The village isn’t mentioned in the Doomsday book however the ‘settlement of Holme’ is in which Beckingham is included within the boundaries.

The Village Hall
Beckingham is largely a residential community with the village hall at its very heart. The hall is an ideal venue for residents to get together for, toddler groups, gardening clubs, band practice, etc. and also has its own social club.

The hall is one of the central focuses of the village as well as the All Saints Church, in which both bring the community of Beckingham together.

Children Play a Part in the History of the Village

As a company we feel it is important to involve the local community with our developments, that’s why we got in touch with Beckingham Primary School and asked the children to name the street within our Vicarage Fields development. We very much enjoyed reading the children’s suggestions and are looking forward to announcing the chosen address (to be decided in April 2021)!


Secondary School
