Beechwood park stands on the rising ground on the east side of the river and lies between Chepstow Road and Christchurch Road. There is an entrance from Christchurch Road and Beechwood Road. It consists of Beechwood House, with its extensive grounds, formerly the property of the late Mr. Fothergill, tobacco manufacturer of this town. The balcony round the house has an array of seats under it, so that when seated under the shelter one may enjoy a grand view of the Bristol Channel and distant English coast. Immediately in front of the house are tennis and bowls courts. The level portion of the upper ranges of the park is used for cricket in summer and football in winter.
