Description

The sea’s influence on Whitby cannot be overstated. From the settlements that were already established in the early part of the first century, its growth as a port at the end of the 16th century due to the alum trade, through to it’s contemporary fishing and tourism, the sea has been the town’s lifeblood for over two thousand years.
Ship building and whaling became major industries in the eighteenth century and Whitby became the third largest shipbuilder in England.
Three lighthouses still exist, two of which were refurbished in 2011 and proudly guard the entrance to Whitby harbour.
