Scarborough Headland
The Scarborough headland

The Scarborough headland - jutting out eastwards into the North Sea. The commencement of the 'South Sands' can be seen on the left. On top of the cliff, at the tip of the headland, are the castle grounds: this area formed the setting for some of the final scenes in Anne's novel, Agnes Grey:

''. . . I shall never forget that glorious summer evening, and always remember with delight that steep hill, and the edge of the precipice where we stood together, watching the splendid sunset mirrored in the restless world of waters at our feet . . . "
. . . Agnes Grey.
