Background and production details
 
As I was spending four nights in Whitby in September 2015 whilst I was exploring the North York Moors I decided to spend one day filming in Whitby itself as well as neighbouring Robin Hood’s Bay .
 
On Thursday 10th September I started filming near the Whalebone Arch before dropping down to the West Pier. From here I shot scenes along Pier Road to include the famous Magpie’s Café and the Quayside . Filming several shots around the harbour I then made my way to film the Swing Bridge. Crossing this I filmed along Sandgate, Church Street and the Market Place. Probably the most important shooting location in Whitby came next, the 199 steps. I got some great shots up here and on to the Church of St Mary and Whitby Abbey .
 
After approximately three hours of filming in Whitby I decided to move on to film in Robin Hood’s Bay. I drove to the main pay and display car park at the top of Robin Hood’s Bay where I parked up and walked down the steep lane to the beach at the bottom. I began filming here on the beach and slowly made my way back up the hill filming many lovely shots along King Street and New Road which included the Bay Hotel , the Dolphin Hotel and the Laurel Hotel. I reached the top of the steep hill at Station Road near the Victoria Hotel from where I captured wonderful views over the bay. My day of filming ended once I had returned to Whitby to shoot a few scenes at night.
 
I was really pleased with my musical soundtrack for “ Heritage of Haworth ”, which included a brass band piece to provide the atmosphere of Yorkshire, so when I came to edit “White Settlement of Whitby” I wanted to create something similar. Therefore, I composed a piece of music for my Whitby video with the brass sounds on my keyboard as well as a piano version of the theme as I had likewise done for my Haworth video.
