THE CHURCHES OF BEACHAMWELL
Beachamwell is unusual in having four churches. In 2018 we are researching and investigating the history of these buildings (as well as the disused Methodist Chapel). Topics will include why there are four churches; the lives of the people how were baptised, married and worshipped here, and ultimately buried in their churchyards; and the architecture and furnishings and fittings of these churches, where they still exist.
We plan to bring our research and findings together in an exhibition on Sunday 23rd September 2018. Watch this space for further updates.

BEACHAMWELL or BEECHAMWELL?
Beachamwell has now been adopted as the current form, but both are used, and certainly Beechamwell was normal in the 19th century. You may also find Beauchamwell, Bichamwell or Bychamwell! Generally this site uses Beachamwell, unless quoting from original records.
