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, also for 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.
