St MARY’S Whitby

St MARY’S Whitby
St MARY’S Whitby

St Mary's Whitby, reached at the top of the famous 199 Church Steps, is an extraordinary church with box pews, a triple-decker pulpit and packed with Whitby's history. It is actually older than the abbey ruins next door. It also has an intriguing, though sadly eroding, churchyard. Watch out for Caedmon's Cross.
