The picturesque fishing village of Robin Hood’s Bay is 5 miles south of Whitby and 15 miles north of Scarborough on the coast of North Yorkshire. Now a popular tourist destination with its distinctive maze of tiny streets tumbling down the cliffs, the village was once synonymous with smuggling and there is reputed to be a network of subterranean passageways linking the houses. Fishing, which had always been the main legitimate activity in the village, started to decline in the late nineteenth century and today most of the local income comes from tourism.

Robin Hood’s Bay: The Postcard Collection takes the reader on an evocative journey into the former fishing village’s past through a selection of old postcards that offer a fascinating window into its history.
