Weasel & Lealholm Bank, Illustrated Print by Amanda Bradley


The Whitby Wildlife Collection | Weasel & Lealholm Bank

The River Esk forces its way through a steep gorge called ‘Crunkley Gill' and emerges in the village of Lealholm, it was a convenient place for travellers to cross the River Esk. People set up residence here in the hope and expectation of earning a living from such travellers. A man named Willy Wedgewood was the messenger or ‘postman' of this area at this time. Also known as ‘The Dales Carrier' or ‘Lealholm Express', he would walk many miles to local villages and to Whitby to deliver his messages and parcels.

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.
