Famous as a seaside holiday resort, Scarborough was believed to have been established by Norsemen around 966 ad, although the area had been attacked several times before the Norman Conquest. Indeed, a century later the King of Norway, Harold Hardrada, and his army waded ashore, burning and pillaging as they went, and totally destroyed Scarborough. The town did not even appear in the Domesday Book of 1086.South beach is the most commercialised, due to the proximity of the railway station, and the harbour also lies on this side. In its heyday, it was an important port for fishing boats that would discharge their cargos on the west pier, the oldest part of the harbour. This fascinating selction of images old and new will surprise and delight anyone who knows and loves Scarborough.
