The Church of St Mary the Virgin, Whitby
The Church of Saint Mary the Virgin is situated on Whitby's east cliff, close to the ruins of Whitby Abbey overlooking the town and the mouth of the River Esk. Church Steps, a flight of 199 steps lead up the hill to the church from the streets below. The Church was founded around 1110, although it was added to and altered over the centuries; the square, three-stage tower and transepts are from the 12th and 13th centuries. Its interior dates chiefly from the late 18th century.

The church is designated a Grade I listed building (List entry Number: 1055865 LinkExternal link Historic England).
