Staithes Harbour Sunset
The Cleveland Way from Staithes to Whitby is the location i capturing this Staithes Harbour Sunset from. A beautiful fishing village hidden away on the North Riding Coast. Steeped in history Staithes can boast many famous residents including James cook. James later moved to Whitby and became Captain James cook of the Royal Navy.  Captain Cook became the greatest explorer of all time and was a hero of the British Empire. He discovered Australia, New Zealand and many other islands in the southern hemisphere. Tragically it was on his third great exploratory voyage that he was killed on the island of Hawaii on valentines day 1779.
Once this quite Yorkshire fishing village was the 6th busiest fishing port in England; now only a few remain. Another local industry of times gone by is Alum mining; and evidence can be seen in the picture on the cliffs at Boulby where it was dug away. The main industry now like similar villages of Runswick Bay and Robin Hoods Bay is tourism. Staithes cottages offer a large percentage of accommodation in Staithes; while the are also many outstanding Hotels nearby and further down the coast in Whitby.
A great time to visit Staithes would be for the Arts and Heritage Weekend that is held annually now; and also for the Staithes and Runswick Lifeboat Weekend. Another great attraction to this corner of Yorkshire is The North Yorkshire Moors National park; Staithes been within its boundaries.
