Sandsend - Raithwaite Culvert

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.
