Been to Whitby many times but never saw the inside of this quirky, ancient little church till last weekend. It's very interesting wandering round seeing the old box pews, the 3-tier pulpit and the old boiler that they still use to heat the church today. Apparently, the Victorians overlooked this church when they cleared the interiors of so many others, so the old cluttered charm of St Mary's lives on. Friendly local people were keen to chat to us and share their knowledge of the church history too, which was nice. Well worth a visit if you're up on the cliff after climbing all those steps..! Weather was grim when we visited, which meant the usual views of the town were hidden behind mist, but normally it's worth the climb for the view alone.
