Whitby is well known today as a seaside resort and a picturesque place to visit, with its piers, boats, fine sands and, overlooking its tangle of red-roofed houses, the ruins of its Abbey in one of the most splendid settings in Britain for such romantic remains. But few of its many visitors would guess the long history of the town or its significance, from time to time, in national affairs. Its fine natural harbour, one of the few on the east coast, gave it early importance as a place of refuge and a fishing port. The Middle Ages saw quiet growth but the 17th century brought great prosperity, with shipbuilding on a scale out of all proportion to its size. Long isolated, except by sea, Whitby developed a very distinctive set of traditions and folklore. Not until a horse-drawn railway was built in the 1830s did Whitby's inland communications improve, bringing visitors for whom hotels and boarding houses were built on the west cliff. Largely derived from its unusual past, the town's unique character draws thousands of visitors each year; and the first edition of this book, in 1993, was as much welcomed by them as by the locals. The only comprehensive history of Whitby, it rapidly sold out and Dr White, its author, of ancient Whitby stock, has now fully revised and updated his book, with some new illustrations and interpretations. This new edition will continue as the definitive work on Whitby.

This fascinating book is a history of the inshore fishing communities between the Tees and the Humber. It describes the fishing seasons and boats and gear they employed and the patterns of domestic life that supported these unique societies. For centuries the knowledge which sustained the traditional culture was passed from generation to generation, but following the introduction of the internal combustion engine to fishing local memories began to fade. In the 1970s Professor Frank set about rescuing as much of that knowledge as survived and this much admired book is the result. The book is richly illustrated with photographs by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe and paintings by J.R. Bagshawe.
