Staithes At Night
Staithes is a small fishing village located in the Borough of Scarborough in the county of North Yorkshire, with its border on Redcar and Cleveland County. Although a few part time fisher men still put out to sea from the village, it is now more of a popular tourist destination, seeped in local history and therefore well worth a visit. A mile to the west of Staithes lie the Boulby Cliffs, where at one time the mineral alum, used in the dying of cloth, was mined. This industry ending when cheaper chemical methods of dying cloth came in to being.
The traditions of the village are still very much in evidence; many of the local women still wearing Staithes bonnets and the Staithes Fisher Men’s Choir is still entertaining people at various events. Importantly the RNLI is actively supported by the locals, with fund raising events taking place at various times in the village and surrounding area.
It was while working as an apprentice grocer in the village that Captain James Cook first gained a passion for the sea. The actual shop has long since gone, destroyed by the sea, although parts of the shop were recovered and incorporated into the cottage that was for some time home to James Cook. The cottage, known as ‘Captain Cooks Cottage’ and inhabited by a local family for several generations, is one of the village’s many points of interest. Another more recent point of interest is the fact that the children’s television series ‘Old Jack’s Boat, starring Bernard Cribbins, is set in and filmed in the village.
Staithes at night offers plenty of charm with the cobbled streets lit by lanterns and you will receive a warm welcome when visiting Staithes pubs and restaurants.

All canvas prints bought from us are made using the Epson 9900. Its 11 ink printer system maximises the ground-breaking Epson Ultra Chrome HDR Inks with their massive colour gamut and DMax.
Colours are exceptionally vibrant with outstanding realism and have a lightfast rating of over 200 years. Our canvases are printed at a staggering 720 x 1440 resolution, which we could not take full advantage of using a canvas of mediocre quality. That is why the canvas we use is imported from the USA, for its superior print quality and longevity. It is a 450 GSM matt poly-cotton canvas that is OBA free and will not yellow overtime like an inferior canvas, it is also archival certified for over 100 years (click here for certificate).
Once printed our canvases are given a day for the ink to cure, it is then protected by a revolutionary Matt varnish to help protect against UV light scuffs and abrasion. Once dry the canvas is carefully hand stretched around a 38mm thick kiln dried solid pine frame and then tensioned using wedges. Finally the back is sealed and a stylish bronze hanger is fitted for ease of hanging.
