Croxton Park House

Croxton Park House

Many thanks to local post-card collector and book publisher, Trevor Hickman, for allowing me to copy this 1732 illustration of Croxton Park House from one of his collection of local history books. (Click on the illustration to view it in full frame.)

The remains of this house, which can be seen from a footpath at the end of Bescaby Lane, have always fascinated me. The roof is now in a very serious and dangerous state, and the ruins are securely fenced off. But it’s still possible to identify the main building from this illustration, as well as the curved colonnades either side of the entrance.
