Beeson was educated at King's College London, studied theology at St Boniface College, Warminster, and ordained in 1952. He began his career with a curacy in Leadgate, County Durham, after which he was Priest in charge of St Chad, Stockton-on-Tees and then on the staff of St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square. Following this he was Vicar of Ware, Hertfordshire and Canon Treasurer of Westminster. He served as Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of Commons from 1982 to 1987, before his elevation to the Deanery. In retirement Beeson has written a book about his fellow Deans.
In 1976 the Archbishop of Canterbury conferred on Beeson the Lambeth degree of Master of Arts. He was appointed OBE in the 1997 New Year Honours "for services to the Church of England, particularly as Dean of Winchester Cathedral." He was awarded an honorary DLitt degree by Southampton University in 1999.
