Description

Located at the foot of Lythe Bank, Sandsend is a picturesque village set against a backdrop of cliffs and meandering streams, which lead to the sandy beach. Known to the Romans and Vikings, it has a long and distinguished history and was once a prominent industrial centre in the local economy. However today, when you enter Sandsend you cannot fail to be impressed by the magnificent sweep of the bay leading to the majestic ruins of Whitby Abbey in the distance. Join Alan Whitworth on this nostalgic and informative tour of this beautiful part of North Yorkshire. Popular with surfers, families and fossil hunters today, the area was once a quarried for alum. Using old and new photographs, Alan Whitworth shows us what has changed, and reveals the reasons behind the popularity of this seaside destination.
