BEVERLEY will again play a full part in Heritage Open Days next month – the national festival first established in 1994 and which has since become the country’s largest community heritage festival. It runs from September 8 – 13, with many off the town’s historic buildings open for viewing and events, including history walks that reveal glimpses of the town’s past.

Themed walks include one about Beverley artist Fred Elwell with a guided walk looking at people, places and paintings linked to the Ewell family. The walk concludes at Bar House, Fred’s home for 44 years. Anthony Trollope, the famous author who once stood as a prospective MP for Beverley, is the subject of another walk, promising “corruption, arson, drunkenness drugs and bribery” in tales of Beverley’s political life in days past.

There’s also a rare chance to see inside the Grade I-listed Norwood House on the opening day of the festival. Full details of all Beverley events can be found here
