199 steps to Whitby Parish Church, by Martin Sutton. Whitby Parish Church is a lovely place I am certain, but it isn’t the reason people trot up and down all those stairs. The church is right beside the ruins of Whitby Abbey, and that is where they are going.    The town of Whitby, with its medieval, Eastern European sort of old world charm, is on the eastern coast of North Yorkshire beside the North Sea. (Martin Sutton)
