Another Sandsend Sunrise looking across the Wyke not far The Cleveland Way. The Yorkshire coastline is steeped in Norse history and although the Vikings may have gone their legacy remains in the place names of the area. Wyke is Norse meaning bay and when the Vikings settled on this coast they gave many places their names and changed others. Anything ending in BY was probably Norse in origin including the town in the background of this picture, Streonshal now known as Whitby.
Sansend is now a massively popular destination with the golden beach that runs all the way to whitby, packed with locals and tourist alike, a lot of whom stay at Raithwaite Hall a short distance from the beach.
