Due to the lack of a nameplate its supposed to be either Hildrith's Ghaut or Landry Ghaut but we're not exactly sure.

Just call it which ever one you want.

Amazing what you find when tidying up.

I found a battered copy of John Wood's 1828 map of Whitby. Clearly labelled are both Hildreth's Ghaut and Landry Ghaut. Hildreth's Ghaut is the one that runs between 9 and 23 Henrietta Street, and Landry's Ghuat is one that runs between 37 and 39 Henrietta Street.

Additionally, I found a copy of "Walks Around East Whitby" from 1982 which has an extract from the 1852 OS map around Sandgate. Clearly shows Watson's Ghaut is the blocked up passage from Sandgate opposite Ellerby Lane, and Fish Ghaut as an earlier name for Brewster Lane.

Wonderful! I can finish my yards map now.

I've just moved house and have everything in boxes, but I'll make a note to dig out the relevant maps and get back to you. In the meantime, my Yards Map is available online here.

I bought a nice piece of artwork, a watercolour by an artist who became quite well known by the name of Thomas Swift Hutton and it's entitled Whitby Gossips, the setting is Tate Hill 1880. 8)

Needs a bit of cleaning up, and it's only the north-east two-thirds, there's a bit off the western and southern edges that I need to include.

My great great great grandfather ran the seven stars pub in Brewster lane in the 1860s
