The latest phase of restoration to stonework at St Mary’s church in Beverley is to pay tribute to remarkable women throughout history. The original carvings which help divert rainwater away from the building have completely eroded away. Church officials told Beverley FM that they wanted to highlight nine female pioneers, including local aviator Amy Johnson, to inspire future generations of young people. It follows the Children’s story Narnia theme used on the North side last year. This latest work on the South Nave is expected to be complete by November.
