the considerable amount of building work in the town throughout the period, ranging from the large-scale restoration of the minster between 1717 and 1730 to the piecemeal activities of speculative builders like Thomas Wrightson and William Middleton later in the century, stimulated the building and allied trades. (fn. 54) In 1716 permission was given for bricks to be made on Westwood for building the Hothams' house, and by 1747 there were brickyards east and south of the town. (fn. 55) Two or three brickmakers worked in Beverley during the period. (fn. 56)
