Whitby’s 199 Steps Black And White
Sunset over Whitby from the wind swept slopes of the 199 steps. An ideal peace of Yorkshire landscape wall art for the home or office. Looking over the roof tops on the east side of the Esk towards the Whitby fishing fleet anchored on the west side of the river.
The lamps leading up the steps and around Whitby town were once fuelled by the whale oil brought back by the whaling fleet who travelled as far as greenland to bring whales back to whitby to be processed. Whitby’s fishing fleet brings back a very different catch these days. Cod and herring for the famous whitby smoked kippers and the towns most famous dish, Whitby fish and chips.
