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.
