WHITBY'S CONNECTION WITH EASTER IS AN INTERESTING ONE
Easter is a magical time of year: spring has arrived, bouncy lambs are jumping around in the fields, and the Easter bunny leaves us lots of shiny, yummy chocolate eggs on Easter morning!
Yet Whitby’s connection with Easter goes way back through the ‘sea frets’ of time.
In fact, the link can be traced back to the year 664, some four hundred years before the Norman Conquest of 1066.
