"WHITBY" The Bigger 270 Degrees Picture~~~

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This photo was taken in 2009 from the corner of the Dock-end and Endeavour wharf...Much has happened since then...The fishing fleet has gone and so too has the Grand Turk square rigged man-o'-war..Sold to a French buyer for less than £two million..The 300 year old Angel Hotel is now clad entirely in scaffolding as it undergoes a multi million £pound make-over..The 100 year old swing bridge has been re-painted a rather bright red colour.

Sadly, due to the ravages of nature, there has been a land-slide under the row of cottages on the sky-line above the blue boat WY 102 on the far side of the harbour..

As I write this, contractors are demolishing the 150 year old cottages, brick by brick..There is no vehicular access to this terrace and a temporary road has been constructed to allow cherry-pickers and a dumper truck onto the site..

It is my intention to record the event with my camera once the demolition has been completed...
