Hare & Sandsend Village, Illustrated Print by Amanda Bradley


The Whitby Wildlife Collection | Hare & Sandsend Village

Nestling in the shelter of Lythe Bank, the ancient village of Sandsend holds the homes of many of the men who worked in the alum industry and on local estates. Alum was a chemical used in tanning leather and in the dye works to fix the dye used in the weaving industry. It was mined and extracted from local stone in the Whitby district and provided much work for the miners. Mulgrave Castle lies 6km west of Whitby, immediately south of the village of Lythe and immediately west of the coastal village of Sandsend. Hunting has a great history at Mulgrave Castle dating back to 1858 when Maharaja Dalip Singh took a long term lease from the Normanby family.

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.
