Beverley is a town that’s been shaped by water. Its

sinuous streets follow many of the streams that once

ran through it, giving the town its elongated shape.

The most significant of these was the Walker Beck

which had an impact on the development of the

town’s various industries.


This exhibition traces the historic courses of the

role they have played in Beverley’s story over the



We also look at other aspects of the town’s

relationship with water such as land drainage,

flooding, drinking water and sewers!
