UK ~ Staithes - North York Moors National Park ~

...Picturesque view of a little fishing harbour located in a small, sheltered cove at the base of the cliff...and part of new National Park for my collection... Thanks a lot Lucy!!

From backside postcard:
Staithes sits on the North Yorkshire coastline morth of Whitby. Penny Nab and Cowbar Nab shelter the harbour around which old fishing cottages cling. In 1745 young James Cook was here apprenticed to William Sanderson, a grocer, here.

Formerly one of the many fishing centres in England, Staithes is now largely a tourist destination within the North York Moors National Park.

The North York Moors is a national park in North Yorkshire, containing one of the largest expanses of heather moorland in the United Kingdom. It covers an area of 554 sq mi (1,430 km2). It became a National Park in 1952, through the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act of 1949.
