Rough Sea

Rough Sea

The final postcard in our series, with a very apt title viewing the former Sandsend Hotel (now apartments) which enjoy breath taking views of the sea. Possibly a bit too breath taking when the sea is breaking over the roadway!

Sandsend (and the Railway Station)

The Alum house can be seen clearly through the pillars of the viaduct connecting to the station.

East Row (and the Hart Inn)

East Row (and the Hart Inn)

This view over East Row beck obviously with a low tide and low water levels in the stream. Must have been a dry summer?

Donkey rides obviously featured as part of the regular Sandsend beach scene. Today they are a fast vanishing past-time for beach users. Perhaps the horseman is seeking direction?

Again a very quiet beach scene, with bathing tents rather than the normal huts. Possibly early 20th century, biut if anybody can advise we will amend.

With at least one bathing hut in this view we have an indication that it probably dates from late 19th century. A calm day even the reflections of the model sailing boats are clear seen.

The horse and cart in the middle of this view give a telling indication of the quietness of the scene presented. No vehicles rushing to get over the bridge as can be seen today.

The view from above Sandsend railway station shows clearly the Sandsend Hotel in the centre; whilst beyond can be seen the road and rail track proceeding towards Whitby.

Sandsend and Kettleness Nab

Sandsend and Kettleness Nab

A view showing the end of Dunsley Lane and viewing Sandsend front and Kettleness point. The railway engine shed today being rapidly replaced with stone built houses, is well seperated from the road to Whitby by substantial wooden board fencing. overlooked

This view is of East Row with the white painted Hart Inn in the centre of the image. St Mary’s Church and Whitby Abbey can be seen in the far background.
