College welcomes Heritage Weekend walkers

East Riding College Vice-Principal John Doris welcomed walkers to the College’s Flemingate campus on their Heritage Open Day Weekend Walk around Beverley. 

The ‘out with the old and in with the new’ walk took walkers on a time-travelling tour of Beverley from 1120 to 2018, scaling the heights of St Mary’s church along the way, to see what was advertised as ‘probably the best view in Beverley’.  The walk was organised as part of the Yorkshire Wolds Walking and Outdoors Festival and John Doris was on hand to show off a relatively new viewpoint – the spectacular vista of the Minster and the town’s rooftops from the conference room at the College’s Flemingate site which opened in 2015.

 John was able to provide a unique insight into the history of Flemingate, having worked on the former industrial site.  John said, “In fact it’s an odd fact that my current office is only metres away from the location of my previous office in the old Hodgson factory.”
