It could be said that Beckenham was founded by Norsemen since most of the early recorded history dates back to when the Normans invaded. There were, of course, earlier settlements during the Stone age and the Bronze age as well as evidence of a Roman camp and Roman road however, the Romans did not seem to think that Beckenham was important enough to write about since there is no recorded mention of the area until the Domesday book and the presence of St George’s church. Full appreciation of the area did not come until the mid-18th century when a wealthy timber merchant decided to build a property on Stumps hill. He later went on to build an even bigger manor house at Beckenham Place Park when he purchased the land and the manorial title in 1773. The mansion still stands today although it is the clubhouse for a golf course! The 19th hole is undoubtedly the most popular and a place where golfers can enjoy a relaxing drink in the company of their associates and of course our beautiful Beckenham escorts. Since most gentlemen who enjoy Golf are of a more mature status, our portfolio of stunning escorts in Beckenham also includes more mature ladies of elegance and refinement, perfect for the type of client we find in this area of South London. That said, we also have a number of Beckenham escorts who enjoy playing a round so if you are looking for a partner for the day then our escorts Beckenham are the ideal choice.
Of course, in order to meet with our Beckenham escorts, you don’t have to play golf! The park itself is Lewisham’s largest green space and offers plenty of other sporting options including football, tennis and woodland walks. For those who enjoy wildlife and other quieter outdoor pursuits, Beckenham Place Park boasts over 70 species of trees, many of which originate from the ‘New World’. These were acquired by Botanist Peter Collinson who was reported to have been friends with botanists from all over the world, and who happened to be the father-in-law of John Cator, the park owner. This could have been considered as sheer luck or simply moving in the right circles. Either way, our own Beckenham escorts move within the best circles of social attainment and many are as elite as their clients.
When Cator died, he was buried in the medieval St George’s church. It is noted as the oldest building in the area although has been remodelled and rebuilt extensively in the last 1000 years! One thing which still remains the same is the old lychgate which is said to be the oldest in England. There are still plenty of them left in traditional English churches and indeed Sweden, which also strengthens the Norseman legend but this is said to be the last remaining original from the time of the Norman conquest. The lychgate had a practical purpose, other than to create beautiful pictures in traditional wedding photos, it was where you took your family corpse to wait to be buried. The little roof provided shelter from the rain and the seats provided rest. The family member would often wait with the corpse for a couple of days until the priest was ready to conduct the service.
