Scoresby’s Gravestone

Whitby has many famous sons who seem to have been forgotten in the rush to embrace Dracula.

William Scoresby was an explorer of world wide renown.

He is buried in St Mary’s historic graveyard but his headstone is starting to crumble.

Please don’t let this important link with Whitby’s amazing past go the way of so many other links to its history.
