Time of year
a great experience to watch the swing bridge in action and then the boats travelling beneath it. All the crowds waiting for it to go back into place and then the rush to get over and see what's at the other side
You get a nice view of Whitby on both sides of the bridge. In the middle of town, near the harbor, so easy to spot.
This swing bridge crosses the estuary and was built in Victorian times. There is an interesting information board by it explaining the history in great detail We didn't see it in action but it is very pretty. A good view point and place to take photos from too.
This is the gateway to Church Street so we spent a lot of time crossing over and, of course, stopping to grab shots toward the sea. on one lovely sunny afternoon we got to see it in action, letting a dredging barge back in to the harbour. It was quite the treat!
Walk around visit and across this bridge. See the great views up the valley. We visited in November and there is a cold wind, so remember to wrap up warm
