On Monday we had a fabulous trip to The Treasure House in Beverley; in addition to the Beverley Barge Preservation Society, followed by a section of the Elwell Art Trail. The visit was inspired by the children’s desire to learn about transport as part of the Intriguing Inventions theme. To start the day we visited the Treasure House to have a look in the museum and the art gallery, the main focus of our visit to the art gallery was to view the work of Frank Mason (famous for his work on railway advertisement posters). We then walked down to the Beck to jump aboard the barges and boats of the Beverley Barge Preservation Society (BBPS). Whilst visiting the BBPS we were very lucky to receive a presentation from the volunteers on the history of the vessels and their link to Hodgson’s Tannery. We would certainly recommend a visit to the BBPS on the Beck.
