Hinderwell

A very different view of the road everybody assumes is Station Road (it originally lead to Hinderwell Station – now sadly gone) but in reality is Brown’s Terrace.  The corner visible to the right of this view adjoins the A174 as you drive through Hinderwell towards Whitby, just beyond the war memorial and Runswick Lane.  The station site is now small industrial units. Sheila Roots advises: ”The little boy in the sailor suit is my father – William Harrison who lived at 4 Brown’s Terrace. I think the other boy is called Jack and they are sitting at the top of the lane leading to Brown’s Terrace. My brother and I used to stand on the bridge and watch the trains go underneath.”
