Port Mulgrave cottages

Port Mulgrave is a wonderful spot for walkers, fossil hunters and historians alike. Its existence is due to its importance in the mid 19th century for ironstone mining. Indeed, the old mine entrance can still be seen about 15 metres above the high water mark. Although still popular with local fishermen, the actual harbour was destroyed by the Royal Engineers during World War II to prevent any German landings. Geologists find the shales rich in fossils with ammonites and reptile/dinosaur remains most common especially in any rock falls. The best time for collection is during winter storms, although care should be taken as the area is not necessarily suitable for children.

However, if you take the cliff path, part of the Cleveland Way National Trail, to Runswick Bay you arrive at a lovely sandy beach with rock pools that can occupy the children for hours. Alternatively go the other way from Port Mulgrave and arrive in the old fishing village of Staithes. With its little pathways (one ginnel is only about half a metre wide) meandering through the cottages, tea rooms and art galleries, it's another good day out. The Staithes group of painters was famous in the 19th century and established the village as a popular centre for artists, and even today people come from all over the world to paint in this quaint little village.

The neighbouring village of Hinderwell has a few shops and take aways for the essentials. For more choice, Whitby is just ten miles away and has supermarkets and a wealth of visitor attractions celebrating the heritage of this historic port town.
