Description:This postcard view of the east front of the Grand Lodge, Beaudesert Park shows the carriage drive leading through the Lodge archway into the park which originally went on to Beaudesert Hall. The Grand Lodge, built in 1814, still remains near to Horsey Lane and in later years has been converted into a private home. This postcard was published by Evans’ The Printers, Hednesford.

Beaudesert Hall was the mansion of the Pagets, Marquesses of Anglesey. Its core was medieval, with later alterations. It was demolished in the early 1930s. The main staircase and much interior panelling were shipped to Australia and can be seen at a house called Carrick Hill, near Adelaide.

Beaudesert Park is an area of historic parkland, within which are the ruins of Beaudesert Hall, a walled kitchen garden, remains of a stable block, an ice house, ponds and cascades. The parkland is located on the eastern edge of Cannock Chase, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and comprises part of the country estate owned by generations of the Paget family between 1546 and 1935.

The Beaudesert Trust own and manage Beaudesert Park and welcomes Youth organisations, such as Scouts and Guides, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Youth Clubs and Schools, Colleges and University groups. Beaudesert Park is used for various outdoor activities and educational experiences.
