Staithes, North Yorkshire, England.
Originally a Viking settlement, the old village is tucked between two bulky headlands (‘nabs’) which shelter the tiny harbour. Home to many generations of fisherfolk, Staithes still has a small fleet of traditional cobles,* often to be seen drawn up on the sides of Staithes Beck, where it flows into the harbour. Fishing and boat-building; smuggling and piracy; jet and iron-stone have all played a part in Staithes history.
Take time to explore the haphazard alleyways of the old village, including the quaintly-named Dog Loup: the narrowest street in the North of England, at a mere eighteen inches wide.
