Born in Marton, North Yorkshire, Captain James Cook remains a legendary son of God’s Own County. At the age of 8, Cook’s family moved to Aireyholme Farm in Great Ayton where the future seafaring legend attended the local school for five years. When Cook was 20 he moved to the fishing village of Staithes where it is assumed he discovered his love for the sea. Shortly after, he relocated to Whitby where he was introduced to prominent local ship-owners who employed him as a merchant navy apprentice. This was of course, where his journey began and Cook threw himself into acquiring all the skills he would need to eventually, command his own ship. Captain Cook is closely affiliated with a host of places throughout North Yorkshire and our extensive gallery offers many canvas prints, framed prints, pictures and photos of these iconic locations.
