Beckett Houses - the old and the new

There has been some confusion in the past over who designed the new Beckett House, who built it and when. This Listing is to set out the facts. Also there is some confusion and lack of detail on the old house.

Shrivenham Heritage Society have carried out intensive research and have discovered more information on this aspect of the Beckett Estate. To read a copy of a summary, please go HERE.
