A-Z of Beverley: Places-People-History Kindle Edition
by Paul Chrystal (Author)
Beverley, founded around AD 700 by St John of Beverley during the time of the Anglian kingdom of Northumbria, was an important centre of trade from the Middle Ages onwards. Beverley developed a considerable industrial base and enjoyed yet another boom in the Georgian period to become the social and legal capital of the East Riding of Yorkshire.
In A-Z of Beverley author and historian Paul Chrystal goes behind the façades of the familiar to discover the lesser-known aspects of the town’s long and illustrious past as he takes the reader on an enlightening and entertaining journey through its less well-known history, delving beneath the surface to reveal dark deeds and strange tales with long-forgotten facts and amusing stories.
