Another shot taken down by the harbour, with St.Mary's church on the cliff top, and the usual pack of harbourside Gulls pestering those trying to eat their chips in comfort. You will note my "supermodel" is taking a rest at the front end of the seat before we tackle the steep steps up to our hotel on the clifftop behind me.
Large fossils have been found in the area including entire skeletons of pterodactyls. Whitby is known for its well-preserved ammonite fossils, which can be found on the seashore or purchased from stalls or shops in the town. Three green ammonites are featured on the coat of arms of the Whitby Town Council. These ammonites are shown with a head carved on, as "snake stones", which were sold as religious souvenirs in memory of Saint Hilda of Whitby.
