Further Information
Features of Interest
-  The Westwood is one of Beverley's commons on which certain people have the right to graze cattle, and on which members of the public can enjoy open spaces and woodlands.  The old mill in the middle of the Westwood is the Black Mill, and was built in 1803 and dismantled in 1868.  It is now in the ownership of the Local Authority.  The stump of another mill can be seen to the south and now forms part of the Golf Club complex. 
 
-  Home to historic houses and magnificent churches, Beverley is well worth a visit.  For further information on the attractions of Beverley visit the Tourist Information Centre on Butcher Row.
