Scarborough





I worked for six months in Scarborough, and lived next to the Castle. It is a very picturesque town, with many contrasts and in close proximity to lovely countryside. The town also gets a good deal of sunshine since it is on the East coast.

Mystery: Robin Hood's Bay, low tide and this wheel chair was seemingly abandoned.

St Mary's: St Mary's is adjacent to the castle, and immediately across the road from my flat. The bell ringing became a bit much in the end! I was also quite amazed at the number of visitors to Anne Bronte's grave.

The Castle: Prominent on the headland and a fixture since Roman times, Scarborough's castle and its surrounds provided me with many photographic opportunities.
