Destroying a jewell in the Whitby crown

We have just returned from one of our many visits to the Sandsend area, where we learned to our horror of the proposal to build 69 lodges in the lovely little haven of Raithwaite Valley where we once used to holiday.

If this development should go ahead it will completely destroy the unspoilt character of the Sandsend area which has brought us back year after year and ruin the marvellous walk we enjoy through the woods to the village.

Please don’t let developers destroy the jewel in the Whitby crown by turning Raithwaite into another overcrowded “Centre Parcs” style resort.

Wake Up Whitby before it is too late.
