The stretch of railway line between Hull and Bridlington forms part of northern England's historic Yorkshire Coast Line (or the Hull to Scarborough line), which runs from Hull Paragon to Bridlington and Scarborough and is around 55 miles long. Since it was opened by the York & North Midland Railway in the mid-1800s, the line and its many stations have maintained many of their original features and much of their charm. Today, the line is operated by Northern Rail and there is much to see along the way from the busy city of Hull to the Victorian seaside resort of Bridlington, including picturesque villages and pleasant market towns, as well as wonderful sea and countryside views. In Hull to Bridlington Railway Through Time, author Mike Hitches takes a journey along this historic route, showing the changes that have taken place over time and features that have remained the same.

Whitby is well known today as a seaside resort and a picturesque place to visit, with its piers, boats, fine sands and, overlooking its tangle of red-roofed houses, the ruins of its Abbey in one of the most splendid settings in Britain for such romantic remains. But few of its many visitors would guess the long history of the town or its significance, from time to time, in national affairs. Its fine natural harbour, one of the few on the east coast, gave it early importance as a place of refuge and a fishing port. The Middle Ages saw quiet growth but the 17th century brought great prosperity, with shipbuilding on a scale out of all proportion to its size. Long isolated, except by sea, Whitby developed a very distinctive set of traditions and folklore. Not until a horse-drawn railway was built in the 1830s did Whitby's inland communications improve, bringing visitors for whom hotels and boarding houses were built on the west cliff. Largely derived from its unusual past, the town's unique character draws thousands of visitors each year; and the first edition of this book, in 1993, was as much welcomed by them as by the locals. The only comprehensive history of Whitby, it rapidly sold out and Dr White, its author, of ancient Whitby stock, has now fully revised and updated his book, with some new illustrations and interpretations. This new edition will continue as the definitive work on Whitby.

Almost all of us have happy memories of excursions and holidays spent beside the sea. For many, these will have included the Yorkshire coast which runs unbroken for more than one hundred miles between the two great rivers, the Tees and the Humber. Within those boundaries are the popular seaside resorts of Whitby, Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington as well as numerous smaller and quieter but equally well-loved destinations. How did the love affair with the area start and how did it develop? Over the years, all the ingredients for the perfect holiday are there - the spas, the sea and sun bathing, board and lodgings, entertainment and just as importantly, the journeys there and back. Beside the Seaside takes a detailed but entertaining look back at the history of these resorts over the last four hundred years and asks, what does the future hold? Packed with information, this book is fully illustrated with photographs, old and new, together with paintings and etchings. Coupled with the thoughts and memories of tourists and travelers from the 17th century through to the present time, it gives a fascinating insight into how our ancestors would have spent their time at the coast. Evocative and intriguing, absorbing and surprising, John Heywoods book will appeal both to those familiar with the area and to others who just enjoy being Beside the Seaside.
