An Autumn Day at Guisborough

An Autumn Day at Guisborough

This Raphael Tuck and Sons ’Oilette’ image  gives a wonderful description of this ”The Yorkshire Moors” series postcard by Gordon Home: ”Beyond the ruins of the Augustinian Priory, are the Cleveland Hills with Roseberry Topping appearing as a great menacing fang – a warning to all who approach the inhospitable wastes beyond. The east end of the choir is practically all that remains of the priory church, which was built in Early Decorated times.”

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?
