The history of the Besfords
Besford Court was the last great, gothic English country house. It is a Grade II*-listed building, located in the village of Besford.
Besford House, Belle Vue, Shrewsbury, was built originally as a private residence in 1893. In 1911 it was set up a boys’ home, as a way of getting children out of the workhouses. It has now been restored as a family home.
There are 11 streets in the UK with the name Besford.
