The steps sound like a good place, does anybody know of good parking places on a busy day.

I find the best place to park in Whitby is near the rail station but it soon fills up as the morning goes on. Whitby gets very crowded but its a small place so you can walk everywhere with ease - except the not-so-fit may struggle on the long steps up to the church.
PS, Hello Ken.

There is a car park on the harbour side, behind the Grand Turk (Tall Ship)and the tourist office. Is that the one you mean David?

I usually find you can get parked on North Terrace. It will be a busy weekend. I thought a good meeting spot would be on the North Cliff by the crazy golf. I worry the steps might be a little crowded and easy to lose people.

This trip will be interesting for me, as I'm totally out of my depth when taking pictures of people. Any tips for hunting down Goths in the wild and managing to take passable images.

The Goths don't take any 'hunting down' because they are there in droves and most love having their pictures taken. The difficult bit at Whitby is fighting your way through the crowds of photographers to get to the Goths.

Yes. Due to a series of cancellations I will now be down on the Saturday. Heading down on Friday evening and staying (somewhere) overnight. Head to Whitby for dawn (which should be around 7.45) unless it's raining.

So are we going a settle on what time & where to meet? I have found a map showing all the car parks see this link

My vote is for about 10:30, however I'm open for suggestions as to where.

I've already suggested the bottom of the steps, everyone knows where that is. Greynolds suggested 'North Cliff' but I don't know where that is unless he means West Cliff. Thats the area above where the whale's jaw bones are on the opposite side of the river to the abbey. 10.30 is fine by me.
