Since 2015 the Beverley Road Townscape Heritage Scheme, a heritage project funded by Hull City Council and the National Lottery Heritage Fund, has been working to protect, restore, and celebrate the heritage of this often-forgotten area.
As part of the Beverley Road Townscape Heritage Scheme, a heritage project funded by Hull City Council and the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Nova Studios has been commissioned to create a series of four short films telling the stories of the people, buildings and events that have shaped Beverley Road.
The first film in the series focuses on the communities that make up Beverley Road’s contemporary demography.
Through the eyes of our three interviewees, we’re presented with a window into everyday life on the road in 2023.
Zeki, a community leader at the Summit Education Society based at Stepney Station, sees Beverley Road with fresh eyes having come to the UK from his native Turkey. Poppy, a teacher at Pearson Primary School where pupils speak 37 different languages, is keen for her students to absorb the history which surrounds them every day. And, Esther, landlady at Station Inn pub, acknowledges the challenges the road has faced in recent years with Covid and economic downturn but is optimistic about its future.
