Fox & Jacob’s Ladder, Illustrated Print by Amanda Bradley


The Whitby Wildlife Collection | Fox & Jacob's Ladder

Known locally as Jacob's Ladder, the original 199 steps date back six hundred years. Coffins would have been carried from the town below up to the church. The 199 steps lead up to St Mary’s church, also known as the ‘Church Steps'. Legend has it that a woman named Old Lisa was often called a witch by the locals and was often taunted by children. On the 24th of April whilst out in the village, she was killed by a horse and carriage. Many people say that she is seen wandering the churchyard at night on the 24th of April.

This print is one in an exclusive illustration series inspired by Whitby and North Yorkshire's coastal heritage, wildlife and folklore. Each design illustrates part of the area's famous history or a local folk tale.

Printed on beautifully textured 250gsm Tintoretto Gesso paper.
Please note: This print does not come framed.
The print is available in 21 x 21cm and 29.7 x 29.7cm.
