Staithes War Memorial

Staithes War Memorial

A further War Memorial created and erected by William Arrowsmith of Loftus. The Staithes War Memorial stands at the top of the bank that leads down into the lower part of the village, and the harbour. The memorial is inscribed: ”Staithes War Memorial: To Perpetuate the memory of Those Who Made The Supreme Sacrifice for King and Country. During the Great War 1914 – 1918”. As the century progressed this deeply felt sentiment had to further include the soldiers, airmen, and a large number of sailors from the Second World War;┬áto the present day as with all Memorials┬áthe more recently fallen are remembered.

As Laurence Binyon’s poem states: ”WE WILL REMEMBER THEM!”

A postcard view of Staithes postmarked 5th August, 1941, is obviously pre World War II. It shows the village much as it is today, although the breakwaters are not as prominent.

A heavy tide must have been expected! All the boats up out of the water, well out of harms way.

Eastward view from Staithes Harbour

An early view looking towards Port Mulgrave and Runswick Bay from the entrance to Staithes harbour, fisherman would need to be wary of these large rocks hidden in the tide.
