History of Caversham Park

In the Middle Ages, Caversham Park was known as Caversham Manor and was owned by William Marshal (1146-1219), Earl of Pembroke and Protector and Regent for the 9 year old King Henry III.  Marshal died at Caversham but is buried in Temple Church, London.

In the 16th century, the manor house was bought by Sir Francis Knollys, Queen Elizabeth I’s treasurer. He demolished the existing manor and built a great mansion in its place. During the Civil War, King Charles I was held captive here. After the Civil war the mansion fell into disrepair and was eventually demolished. Several houses have stood on the site, including the home of William Cadogan, 1st Earl of Cadogan.

The present Caversham Park House was built in 1850 by the Crawshay family and was used as a convalescent home for wounded soldiers during the First World War.  The BBC bought the mansion which is now owned by Beechcroft.

Sporting facilities

To the east of Caversham are Caversham Lakes, created in the former gravel pits. This is the location of the Thames and Kennet Marina and the Redgrave Pinsent Rowing Lake, used for swimming, kayaking, canoeing, sailing and waterskiing. Albert Road recreation ground has tennis, croquet and bowls facilities. Caversham is also home to Reading Golf Club. Local clubs and fitness classes include yoga, cricket, a flower club, Martial Arts, Horticulture and bowling.
