Beverley Gate Research
As part of the Heritage Project that I am taking part in, one of my jobs was to construct Beverley Gate, the entrance to Hull where Sir John Hotham halted King Charles II’s entrance into the city in April 1642.
There are no reliable or accurate images of Beverley Gate at the time that we are building the city, which means I am Going to have to use artistic licence in some places in order to build the gate.
This is an image of page 9 of the book “The Archaeology of the Beverley Gate, Hull, Interim Report”, which gives the estimated measurements for the Gate, which is extremely helpful due to the lack of accurate images of the gate.
Image of the Layout of Beverley Gate in 1642, from a placard next to the excavation site. This diagram was extremely helpful in deciding on the Layout of the gate to be modelled.
