Beck House in Giggleswick has been largely overlooked by local and architectural historians. Its architectural quality raises the question of when it was built and by whom. Whilst offering a description of the house, this paper draws on the title deeds and other materials to show that the builder was almost certainly one Charles Nowell (d. 1749), a gentleman with connections to the legal and gentry circles of north Craven and who may have been a lawyer himself. The house was probably erected soon after Nowell’s acquisition of the site in 1720. Parallels are explored.
