NZ9801 : Station Square, Ravenscar

taken 24 days ago, near to Ravenscar, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Station Square, Ravenscar
Station Square, Ravenscar
The story of Ravenscar is one of grandiose plans that came to nothing, leaving a few hints of what might have been. The Victorian vision was that Station Square would be at the heart of a seaside town to rival Blackpool with holidaymakers arriving here by train. Hardly any of it was ever built. There was a railway station but that closed in 1965 leaving Station Square with a slightly forlorn end of the road feeling - although a seasonal café operates from the one building here. There is an infrequent bus service from the square to Scarborough.
