Countryfile "At the Seaside" 19 June 2022: Sunday on BBC One 11

Sean Fletcher visits Whitby. Isolated between the North York Moors National Park and the sombre North Sea, it’s not a place you stumble upon; it’s a destination. This North Yorkshire seaside town has been attracting people with its architectural, geological and literary charms for generations. This May marks the 125th year since the publication of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, a novel that was influenced by Whitby’s folkloric past and continues to shape this maritime outpost. To celebrate the occasion, Sean is in town visiting the people of Whitby who work and protect its coastline today, providing a springboard for a deep dive into our archives of coastal Britain.
