Staithes is a seaside village in North Yorkshire, England. Formerly one of the largest and most productive fishing centres in England by the North Sea, Staithes is now largely a tourist destination thanks to its picturesque appearance.

At the turn of the 20th century, there were eighty full time fishing boats putting out from Staithes (or Steers as it is known by the locals). A hundred years later there is only one. Still a father and son fishing operation, three generations of the Hanson family currently work the lone full time fishing boat. There is a long tradition of using the coble (a traditional locally made fishing vessel) in Staithes.

In 1745-1746, Staithes’s most famous resident, the young James Cook (born in Marton near Middlesbrough), worked in Staithes as a grocer’s apprentice where he first gained his passion for the sea. He later moved to nearby Whitby where he joined the Royal Navy. William Sanderson’s shop, where Cook worked, was destroyed by the sea, but parts were recovered and incorporated into “Captain Cook’s Cottage”. This has been the residency of a local Staithes family for several generations. (Source: Wikipedia)

  • Thanks Shaun. Well worth a visit but time it when the tide is in, this would be a better shot with the river in flow!
