Beverley
East Yorkshire
In the nave of the Minster is inlaid a plaque to St John who was buried here in 690. Religious life, like the Minster itself, has dominated life in the area for miles around. However there are as equally important buildings: the parish church, St Mary’s, and a Dominican Friary that was founded in 1240. The rest of the town follows suit: there’s a large market place (actually two market squares!) in the town centre with Saturday Market having a covered ornate market cross (1714) and the streets radiating off reflect the nature of the businesses: Butcher Row, Dyer Lane, Duck Lane, Sow Hill, Corn Hill. Some are called ‘gate’ as at one time you had to pass through one to get into the town – now there’s only North Bar (1410) left. The buildings of the town are mostly Georgian, but there are some fine Victorian buildings reflecting its role as the administrative centre for East Yorkshire.
