Whitby Through Time PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Whitby Through Time free pdf Famous for its attractive scenery, abbey, trademark jet jewellery and Dracula, it could be argued that Whitby needs little introduction. But as this volume sets out to show, there is far more to Whitby. The Abbey, of course, is the best-known and loved building here, but perhaps fewer people know of the important role it played in shaping the development of the church in England. And while the jet industry has a long history, boatbuilding, fishing and whaling were the lifeblood of Whitby before it became a popular tourist destination from the Victorian period onwards. That is not to say that Whitby's picturesque aspect and gothic influences are not to be celebrated. Indeed, the beauty of Whitby is that it has retained all these elements of its past and more, and that the town remains1000relatively unspoilt - as this colourful collection of images captures in vivid detail.
