"Winter at Glen Esk"
The road from Ruswarp, a small village just outside Whitby crosses the Esk at Stainsacre Beck by this little humped bridge before winding steeply uphill on Danger Bank.
In his book 'Whitby Lore and Legend', published in 1923, Percy Shaw Jeffrey writes: 'Cockmill, in Glen Esk, was a great rendezvous for smugglers who had their stow-holes in the surrounding woods and the old ropery and the houses surrounding it, on Spital Bridge, were full of convenient storage places. About 1840 a polar bear used to be kept there and one of the excitements of the young of Church Street was to watch it taking an occasional swim in the harbour'.
