Yorkshire rainbows

The back streets of Staithes are a riot of colour and quirky sights.

This tiny seaside hamlet is know, most famously, the home of a community of well-known artists.

The Staithes Group were active in the late 19th century and had as many as 30 artists at one time. They painted local scenes including the fishermen’s wives in their distinctive bonnets.

The village still has a thriving arts scene with an annual arts and heritage festival.

Plus you’re bound to find one or two hardy souls, easels set up, capturing the bracing Yorkshire scenery, regardless of the time of year.
