photoblog image Robin Hoods Bay 6/7

Robin Hoods Bay 6/7

Opposite the Bay Hotel we saw yesterday is the Old Coastguard Station, now under the ownership of the National Trust.

 

It is a fine old building, entry if free of charge, and there are some interesting displays inside concerning the coast and it wildlife etc.

 

You will see more about the slope in front of the building in the final shot in this series tomorrow.


Errata. On 25th.May 2009 I posted this picture and told you it was taken in Cornwall.  Well, silly me, I now realise it wasn't, it was in fact taken at the bottom of the steps on the right of this building, about as far away from Cornwall as one can get in this country!!!

Even the sky is working with you, Brian.

Love that trio of drunken bollards.
Brian Walbey: Well the bollards are just outside the pub Ray, no doubt they have been staggered into a good few times over the years.
There's a lot going on in this picture. I'm not sure which bit grabs my attention most - the bollards, the boat or the steps.
Brian Walbey: There is a lot to capture at this spot Sheila. BTW did you get chance to look at my Dudley link on Friday, there are a few names you will recognise there I'm sure.
I like this shot more than The Bay Hotel Brian.... but still more steps to climb.... i an enjoying Robin Hoods Bay very muchsmile.... thank you for bringing it to us....petersmile
Brian Walbey: If you ever come over here Peter make Robin Hoods Bay a place to visit, and a few more places in the area we could recommend.
LOL at the buskers not being in Cornwall.
Brian Walbey: The old brain cells are getting tired Bill smile

Certainly a nice place, will the NT end up owning everything, I have mixed feelings about NT management and stewardship.
Brian Walbey: Yes there does seem to be a bit more officialdom at times, I'm not a full subscriber to this theory about keeping blinds drawn etc.all the time, we went to Shugborough yesterday and apart from one room all the blinds were up, great for photography.

nice house near the water
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Chantal, and the visitor centre is very good next door.
Definitely worth a visit.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Tom as are a lot of the small places along that coastline.

I like the house; you can't get much closer to the sea, I would have thought. The font garden is my size, too! Good for the NT to take on the Old Coastguard Station.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is as close to the sea as one can get Alan and the display inside is very interesting especially for children.

To be honest Brian this could be in Cornwall: but thank you for putting us right
Brian Walbey: That's o.k.Chris, I've thought the earlier picture was Cornwall for years, it was taken off an old colour slide.
I love the look of this old building, it has a lot of character, Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes it must be quite old, the display inside is very educational, ideal for young children to learn about the sea.
The area is incredibly similar to Cornwall, Brian, so an easy mistake on your earlier pic from archive. Looks a very inviting place.....
Brian Walbey: Robin Hoods Bay is a delightful little place Pamela, in good weather, not I suspect in the middle of winter with North Sea gales blowing!
