Whitby and the North York Moors
Spring 2004 Day 1
Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5
Brian led a party of 29 walkers on a walking holiday in this lovely area in May 2004.
Arriving after a long journey, some of us did a "stroll" around Whitby. Here we catch our first glimpse of the Abbey ruins from the other side of town.
We were not the only arrival that day - the Endeavour, a replica of Captain Cook's ship, had just docked.
The "stroll" continued to the end of the harbour breakwater ...
... then up again ...
... then up the 199 steps to the parish church ...
... with the amazingly weathered tombstones. Nearby you can see the red roofed YHA hostel and of course the abbey ruins.
We did another half mile to see the best view of the ruins ...
... before returning to the hotel. Our stroll had measured over four miles!
