Helmsley Decorative and Fine Arts Society - 'Hull and its Architectural Heritage'

Lectuer - Dr David Neave

Dr David Neave, a former Senior Lecturer in Regional and Local History at the University of Hull, is a social, landscape and buildings historian specialising on East Yorkshire where he has lived and worked since 1968. He is the author of many books including the revised edition of Nikolaus Pevsner’s Buildings of England volume on Yorkshire: York and the East Riding and the Pevsner Architectural Guide to Hull which were written jointly with his wife Dr Susan Neave. His lecture will be an exploration of the UK City of Culture’s rich architectural heritage illustrating Hull’s role as one of Britain’s leading ports since the Middle Ages, with particular emphasis on the medieval churches, 17th and 18th century merchants’ houses and imposing Victorian and Edwardian public and commercial buildings.
