Beverley is the chief town of the East Riding of Yorkshire. With its 14th century St Mary's at the north end of the main street, and the twin-towered 13th century Minster at the south, the glory of Beverley's ecclesiastical architecture competes with that of any town in Britain. Between the two lie market squares and narrow streets, distinguished by houses built during the prosperous days of the medieval cloth trade. The town is still the flourishing market centre for the area. Features of the Minster, Humberside's most splendid Gothic church, are the 14th century Percy Tomb, a monument to the Percy family of Northumberland, who also owned land in this region, and some magnificent wood-carvings.
The 15th-century redbrick North Bar is the only survivor ofthe town's five medieval gates.
The North Bar is a 15th century redbrick structure with stepped battlements, it is the only survivor of the town's five medieval gates.
The market cross in Saturday Market, and the courtroom in the Georgian guildhall, are noteworthy.
In the height of its tower, the Church of St Mary rivals Beverley Minster. Note the minstrel's pillar in the nave and the panelled chancel-ceiling with portraits of early kings. From the twin towers of the minster a modern clock strikes the hours in the S tower and the quarters in the north. A double set of transepts is a feature of the interior. Observe the Percy Shrine's Gothic canopy and the plain frid stool near the High Altar. It dates from the days of King Athelstan, and conferred on fugitives a degree of immunity from the law.
