The Yorkshire region

Staithes

Staithes – a North Yorkshire fishing village with a special character and atmosphere all of its own.You meet the old part of the village of Staithes as you follow the road as it plunges steeply down from Bank Top – cottages start to line the road, you turn a corner and there before you is the cobbled High Street with its collection of cottages, old inns and fascinating little shops. Following along the street you catch glimpses along alleys and pathways to the cottages, houses, chapels and workshops that are packed in apparently higgledy-piggledy fashion on either side in the steep valley running down to the sea between the dramatic cliffs. Further along, just before you reach the Cod and Lobster, you get a sudden burst of sea view - the sky above the horizon is always different and lively here and you quickly realise why Staithes has attracted so many artists to its many and varied vistas for the last hundred years or so. A few yards further on and you are on the front with the full view of the beach and harbour there before you, framed between the sheltering cliffs

Things to do

Visit the beach Sheltered behind the harbour there is a small beach much enjoyed by families in the summer months.

Captain Cook and Staithes Heritage Centre – Located in one of the many old chapels in the village this charming small museum charts the local connections with Captain James Cook who as a young man in 1745 was apprenticed to a village merchant in a shop down on the harbour. (The shop has since been washed away by storms!) The museum also offers a fascinating insight into other local history and customs and has a small shop.

Explore the village! With the help of a useful leaflet available locally you can follow an intriguing guided tour round the backways, along the narrow passages and through the cobbled yards of Staithes. There's much more of it than meets the eye at first sight!

Go on a fishing trip The local shops and pubs advertise local people offering fishing trips out to sea in local boats.

Visit the Lifeboat Station Located on the north side of the beck the lifeboat station houses the modern inshore lifeboat and tells the stories of many heroic sea rescues over past years. In the summer Lifeboat Weekend is a lively affair with many events, people in traditional local dress and firework displays over the water.

Walk the Cleveland Way You can get on to the Cleveland Way going both north and south from the village for a variety of there-and-back or round walks taking in the spectacular cliff top scenery and destinations such as Runswick Bay village to the south where you can take refreshment at a number of local pubs before continuing on your way. A number of leaflets and local walks books give details of walks of various lengths and using local ordinance survey maps will enhance your expeditions.
