Monument Number 318226

Hob Uid: 318226
Location :
Nottinghamshire
Mansfield
Non Civil Parish
Grid Ref : SK5096064760
Summary : Possible Medieval Royal hall or hunting lodge, seat of the Beck family.
More information : "Signs of early foundations north of Radmanthwaite Farm may be 11th or 12th century." (1)

Believed to be the home of the Beck Family. Edward I granted the bishoprics of St David's and Durham to members of the family
in 1280 and 1284. (2)

Henry I had a hall or hunting lodge at Mansfield. It was superseded by a new hunting lodge built at Clipstone by Henry II. (The Beck family could quite well have been the occupiers of the vacated royal residence, and this could be the site of it). (3)

Much disturbed ground at SK 509 646 may represent earthworks associated with the royal residence.

Nothing visible north of another Radmanthwaite Farm at SK 519 637. (4)

An area of surface quarrying exists at the indicated site. but a little to the north and terraced into the hillside at SK 5096 6476 are the grass-covered foundations of a small structure 7 x 5m, but no other features can be positively identified. The site is cut by a sunken road.

Outlines of possible buildings appear here on Sanderson's 2 1/2" map of 1835 but on an estate map of Radmanthwaite dated 1861these appear to be cattle pens.
Surveyed at 1:2500. (5)
