'The road to Hull's Beverley Gate in 1642':
a free illustrated talk at the Treasure House, Beverley

The Treasure House in Beverley will host an illustrated talk by Barbara English and Margaret Pinder: ‘Speaking the landscape: the road to Hull's Beverley Gate in 1642' will explore the road from Beverley to Hull’s Beverley Gate in 1642. The talk will be on Wednesday 26 July from 2pm-4pm.

Maps of Hull and the East Riding of the 16th and 17th centuries, plans of great interest newly discovered in national collections, together with travellers’ descriptions and government records, show different aspects of Hull and Beverley in the years leading up to the Civil Wars. In 1642, King Charles I travelled from Beverley to Hull’s Beverley Gate to demand admittance to the town.  The refusal to admit him was the first hostile act of the wars, which were to change England forever.

Barbara English is Emeritus Professor of History at Hull. She has a number of publications to her name as well as radio and TV appearances, and was awarded an MBE for services to heritage in 2015.  Margaret Pinder has three Masters degrees including a Cambridge MA in English and Modern and Medieval Languages. She has taught summer schools at both Harvard and Oxford on topics including creative writing and Shakespeare. She is a qualified solicitor practising maritime law in the City.  As a local councillor she was Mayor of Beverley from 2012-2013.

Lizzy Baker, from East Riding Archives, says: “This is an excellent opportunity to hear our two fantastic guest speakers explaining more about Beverley and Hull’s role in one of the most significant moments in British History”.

Tickets are free but places are limited. Please book online at www.eastriding.gov.uk/events , at the Archives desk on the ground floor or by calling (01482) 392699 (Mon – Fri 9am – 4pm).

The Humber 250 Trail launched by Humber Museums Partnership

The Humber Museums Partnership, a consortium of Hull, East Riding and North Lincolnshire Museums Services, is excited to announce the launch of its latest project – The Humber 250 trail.

The Humber 250 trail takes people on a scenic journey throughout the rich landscapes of the Humber region, linking 70 fascinating sites of interest ranging from Museums and Art Galleries, Historic Houses and Gardens, Industrial and Wartime Heritage and Archaeology and Architecture.

The trail spans from as far north as Flamborough lighthouse and Bempton cliffs to as far south as Gainsthorpe Medieval Village in Lincolnshire. The 250 mile route is split into three distinctive regions, The Humber South Bank, The Humber North Bank and Sea and the Yorkshire Wolds.

Nial Adams, of the Humber Museums Partnership, commented:

“We are very excited about the launch of the Humber 250 trail. Hull is very much on the map this year for Hull UK City of Culture 2017 events. We simply want to expand the map and encourage visitors to visit, experience and enjoy the unique and fascinating heritage of the wider Humber region.”

The Humber 250 heritage trail will be launched on 2nd June from 12-1 pm at Normanby Hall, North Lincolnshire. The launch will feature an eclectic mix of classic cars and cyclists led by an eager team of Victorian Explorers on their quadricycle, creating a unique photo opportunity as they depart the Hall to explore the rest of the Humber 250 trail,

Pick up the trail guide in the region’s tourist information centres, via the Humber Museums Partnership website at www.humbermuseums.com and via a mobile phone app which will be available on Play Store and App Store for free.
