Our Visit to East Yorkshire

Date: 24th April 2018 - 26th April 2018
Times: 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
Location: Pendle Heritage Centre

Come and join us on our visit to East Yorkshire. After leaving Barrowford by coach we will visit one or two places of interest on the way to Hull, where we will spend two nights. On the middle day we will travel by train to the town of Beverley in the Yorkshire Wolds.

 

This lovely mediaeval town has much to offer. Apparently founded in 700 AD it was part of the the Anglian Kingdom of Northumbria and gained prominence as a place of religious importance and also as a place of mediaeval pilgrimage

Being on the Yorkshire Wolds its significance increased when it became a wool trading town especially under the Normans. It was once the tenth largest town in England and one of the richest due to the wool trade.  Beverley Minster is a most attractive architectural building, however, after the Reformation its importance was gradually diminished.

The third day sees us travelling home by coach via places of interest. More on this later… watch this space.

Naturally, there will be plenty of stops for meals and refreshments – we can’t have a trip without the opportunity for tea and cakes here and there!

The cost is £300 including accommodation, travel and entrance fees.

As places are limited please register your interest as soon as possible with Georgina Bentley.

Did you know?

Beverley is known also for inspiring the naming of the rather more trendy Beverley Hills in California, although us northerners would probably prefer the former.
