More about this scene

Eight miles south of Hornsea, Aldbrough is a more genteel resort about a mile inland - although coastal erosion shortens this distance each year. Inside the church of St Bartholomew (built 1377) is the tomb of Sir John de Melsa, who was governor of York from 1292 to 1296. He was also a renowned warrior. His helmet, now in the Tower of London, was used as a coal-scuttle before restoration.
