Area Information

Glaisdale is a pretty village located between the villages of Lealholm and Egton Bridge and only eight miles from Whitby. It lies on the national hiking trail the Esk Valley walk and the bluebell woods in the area are great for walks on an evening. In the 19th Century Glaisdale was an ironstone-mining village recognised by its terraces of slate roof houses. Set at the foot of the dale, in beautiful surroundings,  it has great local amenities with a host of shops, pubs and cafes. Fly-fishing is available on the river Esk and there are lots of great visitors attractions in the area, especially in the nearby town of Whitby. The lovely beggars bridge in the village is said to have been built by the son of a farmer, Thomas Ferries in 1619. Thomas was considered too poor to marry his young lady, Agnes and so went to sea to earn his fortune. Due to a flood, Thomas was unable to cross the river to kiss Agnes goodbye and so upon his return from sea he married Agnes and built the bridge.
