Snowy River Esk

Just out of Whitby, the River Esk enhances this wintry view of the farmland. The railway line which hugs the bend is almost invisible.

Twice framed

The inviting Sanders Yard (formerly the Shepherd's Purse) café and restaurant on Church Street. There are two seating choices: cosy sofas and armchairs in one room, tables and chairs in the other.

Whitby swing bridge

Just along from yesterday's snow-covered boat is Whitby's swing bridge over the River Esk. The outer harbour and North Sea are to the left, the inner harbour and marina to the right. The tower of St Mary's church, reached by the famous 199 steps, is visible against the beautiful blue sky.

Snow boat to China?

Not again!

Yes, the ever-popular Whitby abbey. The cliffs and sea are behind the photographer and the town is to the right.

The inns and outs

Two popular pubs, the Board and the Duke of York, in morning shadows at the bottom of the 199 steps leading to St Mary's church and Whitby abbey. Both have fine views over the harbour to west Whitby and the passing boat traffic can be enjoyed from outside in warmer months.
