Big Red Riding Hoods
Everything’s different up north from the prices (lower) to the portions (bigger), from the hills (steeper) to the weather (colder). And of course not forgetting that fare (plenty of parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme and tea). Then there’s the ruggedness: a brooding dark stone cliff looms ahead and that’s just Richard and Samuel Sharp architects’ 1830s Crescent. England’s original seaside resort Scarborough embraces the coastline twice: North Bay and South Bay. Sandy rows. Separating the two bays is the precipitous Castle Hill which thanks to its multiplicity of castellated houses creeping up to the castle itself should be pluralised in name really. On the climb up to Castle Hill is St Mary’s Church where Anne Brontë is buried.

It was great to see the writer Anne’s grave. Such an amazingly talented Irish immigrant family.
I love scarbourgh. Its really atmospheric. I think Jonathan meades did a show on it once. Anne bronte was a great writer good pictures of her grave. Good pictures and words as usual.
Scarborough is great. Very under rated. I could well imagine Jonathan Meades approving. Thanks Catherine we try our best controlling the editorial and pictorial team.
