Beverley Minster

Went for a walkabout in Beverley on New Years Day. Quaint little place and very christmasy. We took a stroll down the little winding streets and ended up at the Minster. Free entry (donations kindly accepted) We were greeted by a volunteer who gives you a leaflet about the history of the building and is available to answer any questions you may have (no Sheeps, not who scored the winning goal in the 74' FA Cup Final FFS! ) Now, I'm a fan of architecture and I'm always blown away by places like Westminster Abbey and York Minster, but even though this place isn't as well known as the latter two, it was no less impressive. Two hundered years to build the bugger, and the stone carvings/wood carvings were unbelievably intricate, it also has a huge impressive organ (no Clack, not that kind ) . It also has a memorial and chapel for the fallen of the East Yorkshire Regiment from the first world war. Hundreds of names of young men who probably died at same time as being scared out of their bloody wits. It was the kind of humbling experience that makes you want to lead a better life. As we left it started snowing. That fact coupled with the olde worlde streets made for a great afternoon's walk. I was half expecting some daft old sod to lean out of a window and shout "Yes, you boy. Go and fetch me the biggest turkey you can find".

Ace!

I've had Berverley Minster, not a very inspiring liaison.
