Excerpt from Beverley and Its Minster

Nestling at the foot of the Wolds, some eight miles to the north of its comparatively modern neighbour, Kingston-upon-Hull, lies the ancient capital of the East Riding of Yorkshire. Picturesque enough it looks as you approach it by the York road, with the park-like expanse of Westwood in the foreground and the two great churches towering high above the red-tiled roofs below. Scarcely less beautiful is the entrance into Beverley by the New Walk, with its noble trees and quaint old Sessions House; soon, passing under the North Bar (an embattled gateway of the early fifteenth century), a street vista which few towns can rival is presented to the view. On the left, the graceful turrets and openwork battlements of St. Mary's Church are seen through the trees; in the middle distance rises the eighteenth-century Market Cross, which doubtless replaced a much finer Gothic structure; and, finally, the prospect is closed by the lofty fretted towers of the Minster. Other notable buildings are, the Guildhall, or (as it was anciently termed) the Hans House, the new East Riding County Hall, the Corn Exchange, the remains of the Dominican Friary, and the new Free Library, for which the borough is indebted to the munificence of a former townsman.

The history of Beverley is, to a great extent, the history of its Minster. Enshrining the memory of a great personality, "the most venerated of all the northern saints except St. Cuthbert," pilgrims from all parts of England came to pay their devotions at the tomb of St. John of Beverley.
