Weekend in Staithes, Yorkshire
Updated: Jul 24
Quaint village on the Yorkshire east coast also known as The Jurassic Coast - it has been compared to the coast of the same name of Wessex. The Middle Liassic age is well exposed and has shales with prominent ironstone beds. It has a small beach where fossil searching is a popular pastimes although we never found any. We found most places did not open until 10.30 a.m., had lots of interesting chats with locals.
Popular with artists, which began with Laura Knight who first visited in 1894 and many times after.
I highly recommend the Museum on the right as you walk down from the parking at the top of the village. Kittiwakes nesting on the cliff round from the Life Guard Station. Two pubs, Kings Arms & the Cod & Lobster, which overlooks the harbour.
