Figham Gate is another notable development by Risby Homes, an award-winning creator and builder of quality homes throughout East Yorkshire.
Situated on the south-east edge of Beverley, there is easy access to Hull and the East Coast resorts of Scarborough, Bridlington and Whitby. The railway station in Beverley Town Centre is only a short distance away. There are frequent train services to Hull, Bridlington, York, Doncaster and Sheffield.
Road links are catered for by easy access to the M62 and the A15, crossing the Humber Bridge to Lincolnshire. Humberside Airport is 35 minutes away, and Robin Hood Airport approximately an hour distant.
The development of Figham Gate lies within the boundary of what was the Archbishop of York’s vast deer park in the Middle Ages, the management of which would have been overseen by the Archbishop’s bailiff. The bailiff was the most important of the Archbishop’s officials as far as the townspeople were concerned, and three of the development house types are named after bailiffs, The Welham, The Fenton and The Rokeby.
The development will include five low cost almshouses, under the stewardship of Beverley Consolidated Charity. The charity provides alms house accommodation for elderly residents of Beverley, Molescroft, Woodmansey and Tickton, who are aged over 60 years and have lived in Beverley for ten years or more during their lifetime and are ‘in need’, whether it be financial, social or medical.
You’ll find pretty much everything is available within a few miles of Beverley, from a wide range of country pursuits such as clay target shooting, horse riding and fishing, to popular mainstream sports such as Rugby League and football. Nearby Hull boasts not one, but two excellent Rugby League teams, and a successful football team. Flat racing enthusiasts can indulge a flutter at the superbly run race course overlooking Beverley Westwood. Ladies Day is one of the racing highlights. There is a modern, fully equipped leisure centre nearby.
Cycling has a strong presence in the area, with several road cycling clubs, and with Beverley being on the route of a Tour de Yorkshire stage, spectators are also well catered for.
Beverley boasts many fine shops of the type you would expect to find in a thriving market town, from commercial art galleries and upmarket clothing outlets, to family owned butchers and bakers. Several supermarkets are within easy reach for the weekly shop.
A traditional market is held both on Saturdays – the larger market of the two – and on Wednesdays. Both reward browsing, and feature stalls selling an extensive range of produce, foods in particular. Nightlife is not neglected with several excellent restaurants and pubs, covering the gamut of culinary tastes and wallet capacities. The East Coast has a wealth of leisure destinations, including the Nature Reserve at Spurn Point, and the seaside towns of Hornsea, Bridlington, Filey, Scarborough and Whitby.
