Beverley Minster Cover: View of the Cathedral from Beverley Beck In 2012, Beverley became a 'Walkers are Welcome' accredited town. The brand is part of a national movement to raise awareness of great hiking spots in Britain.

This is already a popular town for visitors and local walkers, but this will further promote Beverley and walking opportunities in the town and also use the town as a starting point for walks outside the town centre.

Early Beverley The Romans had many settlements in East Yorkshire, centered around Brough, a port for the Roman fleet, or Malton, the headquarters of the cavalry division. The nearest village to Beverley was at Bishop-Burton. Beverley appears to have been an Anglo-Saxon foundation.

The charismatic John, Bishop of York, retired to a monastery he founded 'in the woods of Deira', died and was buried there in 721. His cloister, on the south side of the current cathedral, probably stood in a clearing in the woods that once covered much of the area. The monastery had a lake to the south, now Woodmansey.

The life of John of Beverley was recorded by Bede, the first English historian. His tomb was the scene of many miracles and pilgrims came from afar to visit it. The first settlement arose from the needs of the pilgrims; a privileged place, with tax exemptions and a powerful refuge.

When the great study called the Domesday Book was written, York's entry ran to several pages, but Beverley is disappointingly short. 'Beverley...was always free of the king's money [tax]' explains why: the king collected no taxes and was

not interested. However, it seems to have been a large and prosperous place, and the large wooded meadows have already been recorded.

The Middle Ages Throughout the Middle Ages, Beverley flourished on a firm ecclesiastical foundation. John's Saxon cathedral was replaced by a Romanesque version under the Normans; after a disastrous fire in 1188, a new Gothic building, completed in the 1390s, was begun at the northern end of the town. Monasteries and hospitals like St Giles came. The markets brought wealth, the buying and selling of wool and food. Goods arrived by road or as far as Beverley Beck and paid a toll to the town. The city was never walled, but it did have gates, toll gates and a moat that can still be seen to the west. Merchants organized guilds for commercial and social purposes, and the mysteries of the Beverley guilds were enacted throughout the town. The most exotic and unusual guild was that of the minstrels of northern England, commemorated on the NE pillar of the nave of St Mary's Church, "this pillar made [by] minstrels", and on the dozens of musical carvings on the minster .

16th - 17th century Beverley remains a medieval town in the shape of its core. Behind the Georgian and Victorian facades of the buildings there is often a half-timbered skeleton; see in the Guildhall. When John Leland visited about 1540, he wrote: "The town is large and well built of wood...".

In the 16th century, the city went from medieval wealth to early modern poverty. The Pilgrimage of Grace (1536), directed by Robert Aske, was a serious attempt to stop the change. But Henry VIII and his son Edward demolished all the houses and religious customs that kept Beverley wealthy. The cloth trade also declined. During Elizabeth's reign, the city was in great trouble. In response to a desperate plea, the Queen gave the city a charter of incorporation, a Member of Parliament, and much church property. SoBeverley gradually emerged from the depression of the 16th century only to be hit again by the English Civil War. King Charles I stayed at NorthBar House with his two sons while he tried to persuade John Hotham to give up Hull. The armies marched through the city; soldiers were trained at Market Place and there were skirmishes at Westwood.

Modern Times After the uprisings of the 16th and 17th centuries, the 18th century

a golden age for Beverley. Houses have been rebuilt in much of the city center, which still retains its medieval form. Session rooms, racetracks, auditoriums, the theater, and gentlemen's clubs drew high-income families from the county to the city. Beverley became the center of local government, which it has remained ever since. Beverley's first drawing (c. 1720 by Samuel Buck) of Westwood shows a group of houses around several larger buildings, the row houses of the gentry. The earliest map of Beverley from 1747 shows how the town had grown beyond North Bar.

The railway arrived in the 19th century, built on the site of the old church (the Trinidades de los Caballeros Hospitalarios and the Convento de los Dominicos). In the 20th century the pattern of the old streets was influenced by the construction of Lord Roberts Rd, Champney Rd, Wylies Rd, Sow Hill Rd, New Walkergate and other road improvements. drainage to the south and east; but by the end of the 20th century, these restrictions no longer applied. The Civic Society was founded in 1961 in response to a threat to demolish Ladygate and has since taken an active interest in modern development.

Cartmen Can you find a horse and carriage near Market Cross? In the Middle Ages, carts were the main means of transport to and from the market. This image from Beverley Minster shows the cart upside down, because saying "put the cart before the horse" means doing things in the wrong order.

GloversGlovers made tanned leather gloves in the town and would be given to Beverley Minster officers by pupils at Beverley Grammar School when they finished with a BA. Check the chair at the end of Saturday Market. Did someone lose a glove?

Waistcoat makers Beverly's waistcoat makers made leather tunics and traded between St. Mary's Church and the Saturday market. Search Can you find a robe hanging around?

Bricklayers The North Bar is the first brick town entrance in England. Look at the floor and read the bills from the North Bar. How much did Agnes the Tiler and William Potter earn?

Farriers and Lorimers (Blacksmiths)

Farriers and lorimers traded along York Road, which used to be called 'Lorimers Row'. Horse fairs were held outside the bar. Clippety clop - how many horseshoes do you see?

Windmills The remains of several windmills can be found in Westwood. They were used to grind grain that was grown locally. Do you see the Post Mill on Pasture Terrace?

Bakers Medieval bakers were punished for selling poor bread; they could be fined or crouched on the crouching stool, which was in Tiger Lane. Walk carefully! Don't trip over the bread!

Goldsmiths Stephen the Goldsmith once worked for the canons of Beverley Minster, making silver shields and plaques for churches and wealthy merchants. Can you find it?

Hat makers In the Middle Ages almost everyone wore hats, including men, women and children. Noble people wore fine hats and jesters wore jesters' caps! Look up, can you find one?
