Fishing Flamborough Head

Flamborough, like Scarborough with its two bays, has two landings-north Landing and South Landing, the village itself being between the two.

At one time famous for its “coble boats” fishing, the trade here has, like so many other places including Whitby, Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington, dwindled but is still in evidence on a much reduced scale.

The village is steeped in local customs, from its traditional knitting patterns for fishermen’s jumpers, to its Danish sword dancing and should not be missed by any visitor to this part of the east coast.
