Whitby

whiby

A little time out to take in this beautiful view of Whitby coastline.

In the distance are the ruins of St. Mary, whose churchyard on Whitby’s East Cliff gave Bram Stoker the inspiration to write his world famous book, Dracula.

From the old town , 199 steps lead up to the parish church of St. Mary

The town has produced its own famous sons. Among these are Captain James Cook, the 18th century explorer and voyager who had set sail in the Bark Endeavour from the harbour, the outstanding father and son whaling masters of the Scoresby family and pioneer photographer, Frank Meadow Sutcliffe.
