and the swing bridge !!!
Scenes of Whitby and surrounding area
There is lots to see walking around Whitby Harbour beyond the swing bridge.
Whitby Upper Harbour viewed from the swing bridge connecting the east (East Cliff) and west (West Cliff) sides of Whitby.
A view across Whitby Harbour up towards St Mary's Church and Whitby Abbey
Whitby Harbour, boats moored in the marina and across the harbour the PARKOL ship builders and boat repairers.
The wooden sculpture commemorating ship building at the slipways that once were part of the harbour facilities.
The wonderful swing bridge and a few details
The swing bridge is swung open to let a yacht through.
The swing bridge linking the west side to the east side of Whitby Harbour with St Mary's Church on the top right, which you ascend to via the famous 199 steps!
Two scenes on the east side of the swing bridge. These seagulls ignore all the signs, preferring to deface them AND they are not afraid of polar bears!
The Grand Turk, a replica of an 18th century 22-cannon frigate sailing ship.
Work and pleasure scenes on New Quay Road - street musician, dredging barge (which needs the bridge swung open) and small craft for lobster fishing?
Whitby is now a popular place for yachts and the Whitby marinas always seems full.
