Beverley is the next town encounted when heading south from Northam to Albany. Beverley is another small Wheatbelt town that has most essential services. Beverley is also another of those clean and well presented towns. Heritage factors are clearly important in Heritage. A nice spot this is.
The town is believed to be named after Beverley in Yorkshire from where some of the earliest explorers of the Avon valley originated, including Colonial Surgeon Charles Simmons, an early landowner in the district.
It wasn't until the arrival of the Great Southern Railway in 1886 that the town started to grow, and with the completion of the railway in 1889 to Albany. At the end of WW1 the town had four hotels, four banks, two bakeries, two tailors, three tearooms, a jeweler and two hairdressers, amongst other businesses, and in 1938, a new town hall opened.
Beverley is a great small town and to get the best out the place an overnight is recommended.
