Charles Nightingale Beazley (1834–97), FRIBA was a British architect. His work spans the period 1853–97.[1]


Beazley was articled to William Wardell in 1853 and was an RIBA student 1854–56.[1] In 1856–58 he was an assistant to G.E. Street,[1] who was the diocesan architect for the Church of England Diocese of Oxford. Beazley began independent practice in 1860,[1] and from 1884 worked in partnership with H.W. Burrows.[2] Like Street, Beazley worked on a number of commissions to restore Church of England parish churches and design new ones. In the 1870s and 1880s Beazley worked extensively in Westgate-on-Sea, Kent.[3] He was made a Fellow of the RIBA in 1880 but resigned in 1897, the year of his death.[1]
