Senior Dating Beverley

Beverley is a market town, civil parish and the county town of the East Riding of Yorkshire, England, located between the River Hull and the Westwood. The town is noted for its main feature the Beverley Minster and architecturally significant religious buildings, as well as the Beverley Racecourse and the market place; the town itself is around 1,300 years old.
The town was originally known as Inderawuda and was founded by Saint John of Beverley during the time of the Anglian kingdom of Northumbria. After a period of Viking control, it passed to the Cerdic dynasty, a period during which it gained prominence in terms of religious importance in Great Britain. It continued to grow especially under the Normans when its trading industry was first established. A place of pilgrimage through the Middle Ages due to its founder, Beverley eventually became known as a noted wool-trading town. Beverley was once the 10th largest town in England and among the richest, owing broadly to its connection with founding saint of the town John of Beverley. However, following the English Reformation, Beverley's regional stature was reduced.
For twenty two years, Beverley was the administrative centre of the local government district of the Borough of Beverley, and is now the East Riding county town. It is located 8 miles (13 km) north-west of Hull, 10 miles (16 km) east of Market Weighton and 12 miles (19 km) west of Hornsea. According to the 2001 United Kingdom Census the total population of the urban area of Beverley was 29,110, of whom 17,549 live within the historic parish boundaries. As well as its Racecourse and markets, Beverley is known in the modern day for hosting various music festivals throughout the year. In 2007 Beverley was named as the best place to live in the United Kingdom in an "Affordable Affluence" study by the Royal Bank of Scotland.

Education

Beverley is home to the oldest state school in England, in the form of Beverley Grammar School which was founded in 700 AD by Saint John of Beverley.[14] The school has several notable alumni, including chemist Smithson Tennant who discovered iridium and osmium, Thomas Percy who was involved in the Gunpowder Plot and Paul Robinson a football goalkeeper who has represented England national football team. In the modern day the school hosts around 800 students and receives favourable reports from the Ofsted.
There are also other schools in Beverley; this includes the Beverley High School which is a girls comprehensive school, it has around 850 students and is well above the national average based on the results of GCSE test performances. Longcroft School and Performing Arts College is a co-educational school, with circa 1,500 students; it has the recognised status as an Arts College and is highly regarded for its Performing Arts and sporting achievements and facilities. For higher education students from Beverley either attend nearby institutions such as the highly regarded University of Hull, or ones further afield depending on test results.

Religion
St. Mary's Church.
Beverley's largest religious denomination is Christianity; 79.9% of the people in the area polled as part of the United Kingdom Census 2001 professed the Christian faith, 8% above the national average. Beverley Minster is regarded as the most impressive church in England that is not a cathedral[citation needed]. It contains a tomb said to contain the bones of Saint John of Beverley who founded a monastery here and with it the town; another notable saint from Beverley is Saint John Fisher.
The Church of England are in the majority with three parishes; the ancient Beverley Minster, St. Mary's Church and St. Nicholas Church. Beverley is a suffragan bishopric of the Diocese of York represented by the Bishop of Beverley, created in 1994 to provide a provincial episcopal visitor for the Province of York. The form of Anglicanism in Beverley is more on the Anglo-Catholic side of the scale, represented with the bishop being a member of the Society of the Holy Cross. There is one Roman Catholic church in Beverley called St. John's, it is covered by the Diocese of Middlesbrough; when the Catholic Emancipation was complete in 1850 the Diocese of Beverley was inserted to cover all of Yorkshire, but it was later broken up into smaller dioceses. Methodism is also represented in Beverley with around three places of worship.
Missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from the United States first arrived in Beverley in 1850 and quickly established a local congregation. In 1963 a large new chapel on Manor Road was built by local Church members. Due to the continued growth of the Beverley congregation both the building and car parks were enlarged in the late 1990s.

The town is served by Beverley railway station on the Yorkshire Coast Line that runs between Hull and Scarborough, currently run by Northern Rail. There was previously a York to Beverley Line, and campaigns are ongoing to have it re-opened. Beverley railway station was opened in October 1846 by the York and North Midland Railway and gained junction status nineteen years later when the North Eastern Railway opened its line to Market Weighton and York.[4] The station, designed by George Townsend Andrews is now a Grade II listed building and has an elegant overall roof.[4]

The Beck is used by fishermen for matching a large variety of fish such as pike, bream and carp.
