The Construction of The Rosary at Beckett

We know that a Rosary was constructed in 1754 just south of the old main house, and that it was an ingenious astrological design by Thomas Wright. Intially, we only had very basic information about it but recently we have received further information from the military academy archives, courtesy of Rachel Daniels. This listing is to exhibited all the information we have on this remarkable Rosary whilst further research continues.
