Yorkshire coastal highlights

For those who enjoyed the post about Bempton cliffs, here’s a few more images of the wonderful North Yorkshire coastline. Whitby is famous for the Abbey of the wonderful St.Hild on the skyline, fish (their smoked fish is fantastic!), fossils and jet jewellery.

And not forgetting that Whitby hosts both a summer Folk Festival and a Goth festival in November for the Dracula fans. There was child’s drawing signed “Bram” in the house we rented and a collective shudder when we spotted it. Go to Staithes, a tiny village at the bottom of a steep hill to the sea (last picture) now home of children’s TV programme Sailor Jack or to other charming villages on the coast like Robin Hood’s Bay and Runswick Bay. And spoil yourself with a superb crab sandwich at the beach cafe in Sandsend. We always do !)
