The Postgate Trail comprises an A3 double-sided folded full colour leaflet containing 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 on the Knavesmire in York in 1679.There is one important place of interest not included in the Postgate Trail because it is much further away from the area of the North York Moors and York and did not play a part in his later ministry back in his home area, and the events leading to his death. The place is Burton Constable Hall about 10 miles to the east of Hull in the former East Riding of Yorkshire, now part of Humberside.When he originally returned to England from Douai in 1630 he served the Catholic gentry and landowners. In 1642 as stated in point number 6 in the Trail, Nicholas Postgate moved to Halsham in Holderness, East Yorkshire to the home of Sir Henry Constable, first Viscount Dunbar and his wife, at Burton Constable Hall. Sir Henry died of wounds received in the siege of Scarborough Castle in 1645. Nicholas Postgate remained with Lady Dunbar until her death in 1659. From there he is believed to have gone to a junior branch of the family at Everingham near York.Burton Constable Hall is one of Yorkshire's finest houses, being a magnificent Elizabethan mansion with parkland designed by none other than Capability Brown. The House, grounds, and a superb tearoom are open to the public and details can be easily found “on line.” It is well worth a visit!
