More about this scene


Caption for Cloughton, Wyke C1955: This rocky inlet is reputed to have been used by smugglers. It was said that there was a secret tunnel from here leading to the manor house. The area was once known as Clotune, and was in the manor of Walsgrave. A sandstone quarry above the village is the source of the stone for Scarborough Castle.

Memories of Cloughton

One of my family used to own the Blacksmiths Arms many years ago, If anyone is at all interested please let me know and I will dig out who it was and when??

My great-grandfather Ted Allan used to be the tailor at the little shop right next to the grocery shop on this photo. We used to travel up to Cloughton every Bank Holiday from the Midlands in a car just like the one in the photo.... I wonder if this was our car??? I also have lots of memories of visiting my great-grandad (...Read full memory)
