The Westwood
The Westwood is one of four pastures that are found on the edge of Beverley. The Westwood is now mainly open grassland and woodland. There is a golf course and racecourse on the Westwood.
The wellbeing of the pastures is overseen by the Pasture Masters, a group of men elected from the Freemen of Beverley each March. Although the Pasture Act of 1836 clarified the right of the Pasture Masters to administer and enforce their bylaws, it did not state who ‘owned’ the land. In 1978 the courts decided that the pastures were owned by the then Borough Council; it is now ‘owned’ by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
