Beverley History – Walkergate House
Walkergate House was built around 1780, this was when Beverley was first becoming a fashionable town of elegant houses and imposing public buildings.
From 1855 it was the home of William Crosskill ‘The Father of Mechanised Farming in East Yorkshire’ and founder of the iron works in Mill Lane which, in the 1850s employed around 800 men. There is an example of his iron work in the form of a cast iron street lamp on Butcher Row in Beverley.
Today Walkergate House is the Register Office for births, deaths, and marriages in Beverley.
