Scarborough

Scarborough Castle ruins

 

The grave of Anne Bronte which lies in the old burial ground near St Mary's Church.
Anne, along with her sisters Charlotte and Emily, was a fine writer and her two most famous publications were
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and Agnes Grey. She went to Scarborough from Haworth already dying of tuberculosis and,
after only a few days there, she passed away on May 28th, 1849

Scarborough South Bay from the lighthouse jetty

 

Scarborough's most famous and prominent hotel - The Grand

 

The hillside (near top right) is the result of a landslide which occurred in recent years destroying a prominent hotel.
The path which can be seen traversing it is a continuation of the Cleveland Way
which reaches its climax at Filey Brigg, seen in the very far distance

 

These holiday chalets near the Spa are looking 'spick and span' ready for the summer season
