Robin Hood's Bay

A Judges’ postcard view of Robin Hood’s Bay, we like the cart parked in what is now a parking area behind the present day ‘Candy’s Café & Tearoom’. The view is still the same, magnificent!

Bay Bank

Bay Bank

This view of Bay Bank is from slightly below the final brow and you have already commenced the descent! If in a vehicle perhaps contemplating the wisdom of trusting the brakes. If on foot thinking about the return climb and how you will feel at the top!

The Victorai Hotel, Robin Hood's Bay

The Victorai Hotel, Robin Hood's Bay

Our Judge’s postcard view of this iconic Victorian hotel; built in 1897. Situated at the top of the notorious Bay Bank is an excellent place to gather one’s breath after coming up the hill or gather one’s strength before venturing down the tortuous road to the beach.

The Openings Robin Hoods Bay

The Openings Robin Hoods Bay

A view of one of the quaint corners of Robin Hoods Bay, the old cottages built with no particular plan in mind. The cobbled path made with beach stone, and the porch of the doorway on the right with the carved portals probably made with timbers salvaged from one of the many wrecks on this coast.

New Road Bank at Bay

New Road Bank at Bay

The steps at the side of the road in this postcard view of Robin Hood’s Bay bank are still in situ today and are a useful refuge from that traffic that attempts to negotiate this very steep hill.

New Road Robin Hood's Bay

New Road Robin Hood's Bay

The view today of this image is slightly more vegetated! There are more trees and vegetation surrounding the bridge which carries the road down to the shore in Bay. King’s Beck is the small stream which runs down through the village.

Inside Robin Hood's Bay Church

Inside Robin Hood's Bay Church

This interior view of St Stephen’s church at Robin Hoods Bay shows another large church for what was a fishing village. A building often used in the more trying times in the past.

At Robin Hood's Bay

At Robin Hood's Bay

“Splodging at Bay” would best describe this scene from the last century. Today if the tide is down even cars seem to drive onto the beach. In our view the height of the tide would preclude such frivolous activities!
