Beverley Minster is the largest parish church in England and is equal to the greatest of our cathedrals; after Westminster Abbey (the twin towers of which it may have inspired), it is regarded as the most impressive 'non-cathedral' church in England. St Mary’s is often described as one of the most beautiful parish churches of England and of the highest quality. Today these two buildings are among the top places to visit in the East Riding attracting more than 60,000 visitors each year. They ‘bookend’ the town and between them they determined the layout, the character and the history of Beverley.
We need to save this priceless Heritage and keep the buildings open for everyone and safe and free to visit. The Minster needs essential repairs to the leaking roof and windows. St Mary’s needs urgent repairs to its stonework and to replace the organ.
We need to grow the Music and Learning opportunities flowing from the buildings and keep the buildings open for people seeking sanctuary.
