The piers and entrance to Whitby harbour are the subject of many photos one sees from time to time, and indeed I took some of those familiar shots myself.
I somehow preferred this one which also includes one of the old unloading docks further into the harbour, and the tall, weathered, column that I featured during the week. I was lucky however to catch that yacht on its way past the entrance to the harbour.
Tourism and fishing now form the mainstay of the town's economy. There are rail and bus links to the rest of North Yorkshire and North East England. Whitby has featured in literary works, television and cinema; most famously in Bram Stoker's novel, Dracula.
