History of Eastington Park
Eastington Park was built in 1815 by a local clothier and mill owner called Henry Hicks. Mr Hicks purchased the estate in 1806 from the Stephens Family, after the original building, Eastington Manor, was demolished in 1778.
There were four notable families who lived in Eastington Park and they all achieved their wealthy lifestyles through industry and commerce, as opposed to via the privilege and patronage that tended to accompany those with their roots in the landed gentry.
All the families who lived in Eastington Park were heavily involved in the village – whether through hosting events, financing the building of the new village hall, or the construction of woollen cloth mills to provide jobs for several generations of the local population.
Some of the families that lived here were very well connected with high society and had some very interesting friends. The de Lisle Bush family were great friends with the world famous England cricket captain, WG Grace, who came to Eastington Park on many occasions. Also, Henry Hicks was very close friends with Doctor Edward Jenner, who pioneered the worlds first vaccine – it has been said that he ‘saved more lives than the work of any other human’.
Very sadly, many of the families that lived here at Eastington Park lost family members during the Boer War, The Great War and The Second World War. Notably the de Lisle Bush family, whose two sons were killed during The Great War.
After the end of The Second World War, the family could no longer continue the upkeep of their home (particularly after the loss of two of their sons). They sold Eastington Park to Gloucestershire County Council in 1946, who in turn converted it into a nursing home and it continued to be so for almost 70 years.
In early 2013 the current owner, Chris, took on Eastington Park and started to build it up in to the wedding venue it is today and has now hosted almost 1,000 weddings on this historical estate. After a decade of hosting weddings, Eastington Park has won a multitude of awards, but are always striving for more and continue to find ways to improve and better the venue for the enjoyment of our couples and their guests.
Excitingly, in late 2022, Eastington Park managed to purchase the old Gatehouse/Lodge on our tree-lined driveway and after many years bring the building back in to the original Estate ownership. This is now available to our couples for the night before their wedding, and sleeps up to 10 people. The Lodge is the perfect setting for a relaxing evening and to wake up on the Estate on the morning of the wedding, ready for the day of celebrations ahead!
