Robin Hood's Bay
The town, which consists of a maze of tiny streets, has
a tradition of smuggling, and there is reputed to be a
network of subterranean passageways linking the houses.
Fishing and farming were the original occupations followed
by generations of Bay folk, fishing reaching its peak in the
mid 19th century. Many houses in the village were built
between 1650 and 1750 and whole families were involved
in the fishing industry but this started to decline in the late
19th century. These days most of its income
comes from tourism.
