Antique chart of coastal England with Bridlington, Scarborough and Hartlepoole

Burlington Bay, Scarborough and Hartlepoole

DESCRIPTION: Three antique charts of ports on the Yorkshire and Durham coasts of England, including Bridlington ( Burlington ) , Scarborough and Hartlepoole. Coastal areas around these three English ports on the eastern coast of England were important to mid 18th century navigators. The approach to Bridlington in particular would have been particularly hazardous without an accurate chart because of an offshore sandbar ( "Smithick Sand" ) and the nearby promontory of Flamborough Head. The lighthouse shown at Flamborough Head was constructed in 1669 by Sir John Clayton. The current lighthouse dates to 1806.

Dedicated to Captain Ralph Sanderson. From one of the many editions of Greenville Collin's 'Great Britain's Coasting Pilot', published from 1693 to 1792. Number 37.
