POSTGATE TRAIL LEAFLET This   double-sided   full   colour   leaflet   contains maps,    photographs,    sketches    and    historical information.   It   has   been   designed   to   enable those     interested     to     discover     more     about Blessed   Nicholas   Postgate,   from   his   birthplace in   Egton   Bridge   near   Whitby   to   his   ministry across    the    North    York    Moors    where    he served    until    his    arrest,    trial,    imprisonment and martyrdom in York in 1679. The   Trail   is   complete   in   itself   but   could   also be    used    in    conjunction    with    the    booklet “Blessed     Nicholas     Postgate,     Priest     and Martyr”   by   Monica   P.   Ventress,   and   also   the DVD     “The     Yorkshire     Martyr:     Nicholas Postgate.” One important place of interest   not included is Burton   Constable   Hall   about   10   miles   to   the east    of    Hull    in    the    former    East    Riding    of Yorkshire   because   it   did   not   play   a   part   in   his later ministry back in his home area. Upon his return to England from Douai in 1630   Nicholas   served   the   Catholic   gentry   in   this   area.   In   1642   he   moved   to Halsham   in   Holderness   to   the   home   of   Sir   Henry   Constable,   first   Viscount Dunbar,   and   his   wife,   at   Burton   Constable   Hall.   Nicholas   Postgate   remained there   until   1659   when   he   is   believed   to   have   gone   to   a   junior   branch   of   the family at Everingham near York.
