St Mary's Beverley 1

Details

This walk will hit the heights – literally! Starting with a stunning viewpoint (weather permitting) giving you probably the best view in the East Riding. You will need a head for heights and good mobility as there will be tower and steps during the walk. Leaving this vantage point we will walk through Beverley, forward in time, covering a millennium of history as we walk. The walk will highlight signs of the past centuries in our busy streets. Right up to date in 2017 we will then have a very privileged opportunity to see Beverley Minster and the rooftops of the town from the latest spectacular viewpoint from the Conference Room at the East Riding College. The Vice Principal John Doris has invited us to join him for coffee to hear about the college and the development of Flemingate.
