Sand’s End and Cliffs

Sand’s End and Cliffs

A view of Sandsend, entitled “Sand’s End and the Cliffs” from a published “Views of Whitby & District”, undated but obviously early 20th century. The railway station and its environs look remarkably tidy!

Sandsend – Raithwaite Culvert

Construction of the Raithwaite culvert and road – Whitby to Sandsend – in the early 1920s, this allowed access for the Newholm beck to flow into the sea. The original image possibly taken by Tom Watson of Lythe; he was commissioned to make a week by week photographic record of the works.
