Travel through time to the 1960s and view the streets of Beverley as they were in the time of mop tops, mini-skirts & Morris Minors.

Apart from the classic cars, the character of the town remains virtually unchanged, but brief glimpses of the Armstrong (shock absorber manufacturers) offices on Eastgate, and the Grovehill shipyard, remind us of Beverley’s forgotten industries.

(This video is part of the East Riding Archives DVD ‘The Colour of Beverley’ which showcases some of the first footage of the town in colour. It’s available from Beverley Tourist Information Centre and the Treasure House shop, Champney Road, Beverley (priced £5.99).
