Sandsend Beach

Sandsend Beach

A fine summers day at Sandsend in 1950. The railway viaduct over Sandsend Beck, which carried the scenic Loftus to Whitby line is prominent as is the station. The station was used in a film around this time. Peter Lee tells us: ”The film was ‘Holiday Camp’, made in 1947 – not by Ealing, but the poor relation of British movie-making – Gainsborough Pictures. Right at the beginning of the film, an LNER train pulls into Sandsend station from the north. I am told the holiday camp featured thereafter was at Filey.”
