Beckside Farm, situated in the Whicham valley on the South Western Lake District has been owned by the Morris-Eyton family for over 300 years and is the base for all that we do at Beckside.
The Beckside hydro Electric Scheme, built in 2012 uses the Beck that flows through the farm to generate electricity to power the farm and buildings. Any additional power generated is sold back to the national grid. Since commissioning the scheme has produced over 1,000,000 kWh of electricity.
Over the years at Beckside we have developed a wealth of expertise and knowledge of Pipeline installations utilising both Butt Fusion and Electrofusion methods.
To date we have successfully installed Penstocks at 6 sites throughout Cumbria and North Yorkshire, with pipe diameters ranging from 400mm to 560mm.
Our team of highly skilled excavator drivers have experience in working in numerous sometimes difficult environments. With our range of excavator attachments such as breakers and concrete mixing buckets, we are able to successfully operate in remote locations with difficult access.
The commercial flock at Beckside comprises of a combination of fell going Swaledale ewes and homebread mule ewes that are grazed on the farm.
The Hallbeck flock is a Pedigree Swaledale Flock belonging to Patrick Morris-Eyton. Patrick started showing his sheep at a few shows in 2013 with considerable success at local shows and also more prestigious show such as Broughton-in-Furness, Penrith, Cockermouth and also Muker.
Since 2011 Beckside Construction has successfully installed 6 Hydro Electric schemes with a 7th currently under construction. The schemes are located in Cumbria and North Yorkshire and range from the smallest at 87kW to the largest at 250kW.
