HISTORIC cobbles are being taken up as part of a revamp of Beverley’s historic market place. But they will not be missing for long.
East Riding Council had intended to permanently remove almost all the stone setts in Saturday Market but public pressure forced a rethink. Now, the stones will be re-laid by hand as part of the £2,650,000 renovation.
Nigel Leighton, director of environment and neighbourhood services at East Riding Council, said: “Maintenance works in Saturday Market are progressing as planned and the council and its contractor are now moving on to the first phase of works that incorporate the setts.
“A raised table will be installed near to Old Waste, opposite the Market Cross, and will require some of the setts to be taken up, as agreed with both English Heritage and the Beverley Civic Society in January.
