We would like to respond if we may to the letter from Jim Dawson regarding the lack of facilities for anglers.
We run Whitby Seafishing Supplies which is directly opposite the Church Street Car Park and our toilet facilities are available for our customers.
We are very well aware of the lack of facilities when anglers arrive early which is why we decided it should be part of the service that we offer.
This said, we also agree that Whitby is sadly lacking in clean facilities for our visitors - we have lost count of the number of people who ask about toilet facilities and are almost embarrassed when we have to direct them to the Shambles as they are indeed a shambles!
