Whitby Abbey walk was blighted by caravans - Yorkshire Post Letters

From: Diana Taylor, Upper Wilshaw, Holmfirth.

Whitby is one of Yorkshire's most popular visitor destinations.

Last week I was lucky enough to walk the section of the Cleveland Way between Robin Hood’s Bay and Whitby.

This is a walk that I have enjoyed many times.

However, this time, the highlight of the walk, the approach to Whitby Abbey, was blighted by a field full of caravans and generators.

Tourism remains in the spotlight.

How has this iconic view been allowed to be ruined in this way?

What a poor first impression of Whitby.

I would hope this is a temporary measure perhaps given the shortened season this year. If not, I think that it is vandalism of the highest order and should be reviewed.

In response to Rob Greenland (The Yorkshire Post, September 14).I would go further than making cyclists pay a tax to fund these freeways across the county. 

I would make the wearing of helmets compulsory, have cycles attain a suitable level of roadworthiness and increase fines substantially for anyone caught riding a bicycle on the pavement, regardless of age.
