Beverley History – Wylies Road
Here is an interesting photo of the North Bar in Beverley taken in 1910. The three storey home on the far left belonged to Robert Wylie J.P. and was demolished in 1959 to make way for the widening of Wylies Yard into Wylies Road, which now links North Bar Without to Norwood. If you’re old enough you’ll remember that the only way buses from Beverley town centre could go north to Driffield and beyond, was to go through the Beverley Bar with its tight squeeze and frequent damage to the Bar and East Yorkshire buses!
Immediately to the right of the Wylies home is the mock half-timbered houses created by woodcarver J.E. Elwell in the 1890’s and which still stand today and now form the corner of Wylies Road.
The building with the sunshade pulled down is the now well-known pizza takeaway parlour!
