“New Road, Robin Hoods Bay”
A small fishing village clinging to the steep cliffs of the North Yorkshire coast, legend has it that Robin Hood’s Bay was named after the outlaw and that it formed a safe retreat when Nottinghamshire became too dangerous for him and his ‘Merry Men’.
It was also a favourite landing for smugglers until the Revenue became too efficient to make it a worthwhile profession.
The groups of figures and receding planes of the huddled houses add much to this atmospheric photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe.
