Take a walk down Beverley Road with Conservation Guide, Hilary Byers.
We’ll look at some of our oldest school buildings along Beverley Road. In keeping with the ‘Hidden Nature’ theme of this year’s Heritage Open Days, we’ll also appreciate some surprising green havens, maintained by enterprising groups of community gardeners.
We may also be surprised at how many cinemas were proposed and built within a short distance of each other.
Of course we’ll update you on the progress now being made with preserving the remains of the bombed National Picture Theatre, for which we are grateful to National Lottery players, Hull City Council and the National Civilian World War 2 Memorial Trust.
We’ll finish at Stepney Station, from which so many have fond memories of trips to Hornsea and Withernsea. The station building is now a place of learning and leisure run by the Turkish Community.
