Strange, I thought, no-one was bothered that a snake was twisted round a street light in the centre of town. They just got on with their business as if it were perfectly normal to have a serpent in their midst.... But then they knew it was part of the Beverley Town Trail depicting the various Guilds and trades of Mediaeval Beverley. Snakes apparently were the symbol of the barbers who had to perform surgery since the clergy were banned from making cuts, this job is now performed by Conservative ministers.
