Celebrating 50 years of Beverley as a conservation area
This year sees the 50th anniversary of Beverley’s designation as a Conservation Area. And to celebrate, a new exhibition, “Conservation 50”, opens at the Beverley Guildhall on Wednesday, July 18th, and runs until mid-November. Fiona Jenkinson, curator of the Guildhall, said: “We felt this anniversary was an excellent opportunity to look again at what makes Beverley so attractive and to consider how the landscape and historical importance are preserved.”
And Kloskk Tyrer, who helped with the exhibition, told us: “It is thanks to the past 50 years of the Conservation Area that the town has retained so much of its heritage and kept Beverley as the pleasant town we see today.”
The Guildhall is located in Register Square next to the main post office. It is open from 10am to 4pm every Wednesday and Friday, until November 1, when the Wednesday openings reduce to 10am to 1pm. Admission is always free. An extra weekend viewing will be available on Saturday September 8, from 10am to 4pm, as part of the Heritage Open Day.
