Beverley History – The Racecourse
Pictured below is the grandstand at Beverley Racecourse taken in the early 1900’s. Although not as glamorous as the grandstand today, it was then a very popular venue for race goers in Yorkshire.
An annual race meeting was first established at Beverley in 1767. Before that races had only occasionally been run on the Westwood Pasture. Then, for a short period between 1798 and 1805 racing once again stopped.
Later in the 19th century a three-day meeting was taking place annually in the week after York’s May meeting. By 2016, Beverley Racecourse was hosting racing 19 days a year.
