Beverley - an historic county town. Nov 09, 2011
Beverley was the county town of the East Riding of Yorkshire and later of the county of Humberside, itself no longer in existence. When I used to travel all over Yorkshire and Humberside, this was one of my favourite places.
I used to approach it past its delightful racecourse. The town centre is quite small but it contains two superb churches with absolutely terrific interior carvings.
I undestand tha the County Hall was the model sed by Winifred Holtby in her novel 'South Riding.'
