We was a short item on the local TV about Beverley Beck. I didn't really know the area, so a short trip gave us the low down. We checked out the small estates south of the beck and some of the new, smart-looking mews apartments which used to be waterside factories. We then drove along the small road that borders the beck to the place it joins the river Hull. Here there is a lock to keep the beck levels up. I guess the beck is really a canal today, even though it may once have been a small stream. The road beside the beck is pretty exposed, with nothing to stop a careless driver from becoming a submarine captain. I tried to follow the road on the north side of the beck, but it ends quickly - at least it has railings.
