Beverley St Mary

History of St Mary’s church, Beverley, Yorkshire.

In the nearly 900 years since St Mary's foundation in 1120 by the Archbishop of York, Thurstan, the church has had quite a conquered history At first St Mary’s was designated as a chapel of ease, but in 1269 it was redefined as a vicarage church.

The original church was a small chancel and nave, during the expansions of the late 12th and early 13th centuries, the chancel was extended and widened - the original buttress bases can still be seen in the chancel.  The North and South transepts were added as were the North and South Aisles.  

Between 1380 and 1411 the nave was extended upwards, allowing for a clerestory and additions to the nave arcading and enlarging the west front. The South porch was added at this time, which gave St Mary’s it’s current ground plan.

In the 1440’s the chancel was raised, with the addition of the clerestory, and a fine painted ceiling.  The choir stalls with their misericords were added at this time.  It is worth taking time to look at misericord S7 - incredibly for a mid-15th century misericord, this elephant, if not anatomically correct, is at least recognisably an Indian elephant - quite remarkable when you consider that the carver of this misericord would be working from a verbal description from someone who probably had only heard of an elephant!

At some point in the late 15th century the central tower was raised, unfortunately the stresses were too great for the pillars to support, which led to the tower’s collapse in   April 1520, causing the death of many who were attending service The church was rebuilt within four years.

St Mary's Beverley was fully restored between 1844 and 1876, by both Pugin the elder, Pugin the younger and Sir George Gilbert Scott.
