“Barry’s Square, The Cragg, Whitby”
Barry’s Square was a short yard opening off The Cragg, an area now largely demolished, but which in Sutcliffe’s time housed much of the fishing community.
At one time, The Cragg was the only road connecting the town with Scotch Head as the quayside ended at Coffee House Corner. Until Pier Road was built in the early part of the 19th Century, the harbour backed directly onto The Cragg and the cottages, which had their privies discharging straight into the harbour.
