Staithes






Staithes is very like Robin Hoods Bay and Runswick bay with its narrow streets and alleyways hanging onto the cliffside either side of a small river. The car park is at the top of the cliffs like Robin hoods bay with a walk down to the old village. It only has a tiny beach which is actually inside the harbour walls. Again it is famous for its fossils particularly ammonites
