Robin Hood's Bay
Robin Hood's Bay is a small fishing village and a bay
located within the North York Moors National Park.
Bay Town, its local name, is in the ancient chapelry
of Fylingdales in the wapentake of Whitby Strand.
The origin of the name is uncertain, and it is doubtful
if Robin Hood was ever in the vicinity. Legend has it
that Robin Hood encountered French pirates who came
to pillage the fishermen's boats and the north east coast.
The pirates surrendered and Robin Hood returned the
loot to the poor people in the village that is
now called Robin Hood's Bay.
