Beverley

Beverley is a market town in the East Riding of Yorkshire, north of Kingston-upon-Hull, east of Market Weighton[?] and west of Hornsea[?]. It is best known for Beverley Minster and its racecourse[?]. There is also Beverley Friary[?] and a fine medieval church, St Mary's, reflecting its former status as a wealthy wool-trading town (in the 14th century, Beverley was classed as the eleventh richest town in England, and taxed accordingly).
