Fishmongers sign

Hi Folks,

I was in Pateley Bridge, North Yorkshire last Friday and saw the following old sign on the rear wall of the gatehouse of the graveyard there. May be of interest - I couldn't immediately see anything on the internet about the company (Riccarton Fishmongers, Whitby). Just a bit surprised to see it there!

That's great, I wonder what the story is behind it and how much more miscellaneous Whitby memorabilia is out there :?:

I'd be interested too!

I've never heard of them in 60 years!! and it's certainly not a name I'd associate with fishing in Whitby.
