Research at Beverley Minster

Increasing numbers of people are using Beverley Minster for research projects, degree and Ph.D. theses, both from the UK and abroad. In order to avoid copyright problems, duplication, and possible Health and Safety issues we ask you to register projects with us. In this way we can provide a good service for researchers, and, in time, compile a comprehensive bibliography of the Minster, using unpublished theses as well as available publications.

Whether you have already started a project, are in the middle of one, or have recently completed one, we would like to hear from you. Please register using the form in the link and email to
