Captain Cook Memorial statue

This memorial statue to Captain James Cook proudly looks out over Whitby harbour
where his sailing ships 'Endeavour', 'Resolution', 'Adventure' and 'Discovery' were built
and from where he sailed on his great voyages of exploration in 1768-71, 1772-75 & 1776-78


The Whalebones

The famous 'whalebones' which stand on West Cliff, close to Cook's memorial,
seen here framing St Mary's Church and behind, the ruins of Whitby Abbey
