This beautiful art print shows the famous Whitby Steps in Yorkshire, England.   It is a perfect for anyone proud to be from Yorkshire or is lover of the area.  This unique artwork would make the perfect gift for someone special, or as a treat for yourself, and is ideal for any stylish home. As an added bonus the image was also created using a variation of the historic Cyanotype process in blue, white and gold for an added touch of historical nostalgia.  

Exclusive to Alchemi Art you won’t find this print in the big chain stores.

The steep set of steps leads from the harbour up to the imposing ruin of Whitby Abbey.  There are 199 steps, yes I have counted them, and they’re actually a grade 1 listed structure.  Although the Abbey was founded in 657 BCE the first record of the steps isn’t until 1340 BCE.  Those first recorded steps were made of wood but it’s hard to believe that there weren’t steps earlier than that.  No visit to Whitby is complete without going at least part way up these steep steps, but don’t worry there are benches to rest on as you go up.

By choosing to buy from Alchemi Art you are choosing to buy something a little different to what you will find in the big chain store or mega commerce websites. You’ll get a print that stands out from others and also has a story behind it. All the artwork designs are created by me in my studio in County Durham so you’ll also be supporting a small local business.

I love working with the old Victorian photographic processes. One of my favourites is the cyanotype which has a distinctive blue and white colour. If you would like to learn more about the process then check out these articles here on the website. Cyanotype Art and the Cyanotype Process. How to make a cyanotype tutorial. Inspired by Anna Atkins.
