Memories of Beckington, Ravenscroft School c1950

Beckington

Not a memory just interested as you can see my name is Beckington !!!

Strange But True

Our first home was a ground floor bedsit at 40 Castle Corner opposite the castle. The old part of the road formed a hammer head and had three parking bays. One dark rainy winters night my husband parked outside and ran in to get his wallet. When he got back outside the car was gone. He ran out into the road and saw that it was in fact parked between two cars in the hammer head. He must have left it with the handbrake off and the camber of the road must have determined the line at which it travelled. Whether the two parked cars were already there or not we shall never know. He couldn't have parked it better if he had been behind the wheel.

History

A fine stone village a mile from Frome, Beckington has some superb stone houses and a church with an excellent Norman tower. The Castle, in 1955 the Ravenscroft School, a boys' prep school, is a late 16th-century house of three storeys with gabled attics and a three-storey porch and stair turret, both crowned with medieval-style battlements.
