The popular butcher shop in Wednesday Market, Ye Olde Pork Shoppe, is due to close later this month. Its bright red frontage and period signage has been a landmark in the Beverley town centre for over half a century. Many residents will have shopped there and remember the lengthy queues outside the shop on Christmas Eve as customers waited to collect their turkeys.

A letter from the shop’s team has thanked customers for their loyal support. Its closure follows that of another high street stalwart, the menswear store Streffords.
