Beverley Gate, Kingston upon Hull
Beverley Gate, Kingston upon Hull
Beverley Gate was the principle entrance to the walled and fortified town circa 1321 to circa 1780. It was here, in 1642, that Sir John Hotham, the Governor, denied entry to the town to King Charles I - the first overt act of the Civil War. Following an archaeological survey, the preserved remains of Beverley Gate were formally opened to the public, by the Lord Mayor, on 16 May 1990. In the background, offices and shops in Whitefriargate.
