The sixties, seventies and eighties were decades of great change. Many towns and cities were redeveloped with projects that dramatically affected the character of the place. People's shopping habits were altered as supermarkets took over from traditional stores and corner shops. Leisure habits were changing too, as cheap air travel led to the arrival of the foreign package holiday and a new range of leisure facilities were developed at home. Fashions, as ever, were changing in this period, reflecting radical changes in society and the ways in which we viewed ourselves. Transport also evolved, with a move away from the railway and buses, creating a strain on the roads leading to new road schemes.

These changes in people's habits and lifestyles were keenly felt in Beverley in East Yorkshire as the historic market town built around its Minster grew in size, its population expanded and areas around the town were redeveloped. In Now That’s What I Call Beverley author captures this period of change in a fascinating portrayal of the town and its people over the course of these most nostalgic decades.
