Scenes from the Yorkshire Wolds, East Riding of Yorkshire

Beverley is an attractive ancient medieval market town with its fine

Town Centre and Minster carvings and St Mary's Parish Church

Beverley Minster: St John of Beverley founded this church. He was Bishop of Hexham from AD 687-705 and Bishop of York from AD 705-718. He was born at Harpham and died in Beverley in AD 721.

 

Much of what you see of Beverley Minster today was built from 1230 to 1450.
